Headword: Ὑποκρεκόντων
Adler number: upsilon,522
Translated headword: tapping
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning they who are] striking, touching.
Greek Original:
Ὑποκρεκόντων: κρουόντων, ἐγγιζόντων.
Notes:
Headword and gloss are in fact genitive plural (masculine/neuter) of present participles, the headword one evidently quoted from somewhere (thiough attested only here). The verb refers to stringed musical instuments when accompanying.
Adler notes the view of Jonathan Toup (1713-1785) that the entry derives from scholia on Pindar, Olympian Odes 9.39, where ὑποκρέκει occurs.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; meter and music; poetry
