Headword: Ὕστινος
Adler number: upsilon,691
Translated headword: crimson
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A kind of dye.
"And summer dresses dyed out of scarlet and crimson."[1]
Greek Original:
Ὕστινος: βάμματος εἶδος. τἀκόκκοιο βαφθέντα, καὶ ὑστίνοιο θέριστρα.
Notes:
The transmitted headword ὕστινος is an error for (or corruption of) ὕσγινον ; cf. upsilon 674. And there is an analogous fault in the Suda's three quotations from the Anthology: see next note.
[1] Greek Anthology 6.254.3; already at theta 239 and tau 27.
Keywords: botany; clothing; definition; poetry; trade and manufacture
