Greek display:    

Headword: Ὕσθης
Adler number: upsilon,677
Translated headword: rained
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
(?)Rain-water.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] ὕσθησαν ["were rained upon"]. Herodotus [writes]: "for at that time Thebes was rained upon, never before having been rained upon; since in Egypt it is supposed not to rain."[2]
Greek Original:
Ὕσθης: βροχή. καὶ Ὕσθησαν. Ἡρόδοτος: ὕσθησαν γὰρ τότε Θῆβαι, οὐδαμὰ πρότερον ὑσθεῖσαι: ἐπεὶ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ δοκεῖ μὴ ὕειν.
Notes:
[1] For the gloss, Adler prints βροχή from ms.F, while noting (a) that other mss. either have the truncated βροχ or omit the gloss altogether and (b) the suggested emendations in the ed. pr. (ἐβράχης ) and by Bernhardy (ἐβράχη ). Certainty is made more difficult by the ambiguity of the headword itself, attested only here.
[2] See beta 436 (and upsilon 676). The verb is plural because in Greek 'Thebes' is plural.
