Headword: Ὑφιζήσεις
Adler number: upsilon,733
Translated headword: subsidences
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] sinkings-down, givings-in. "[He/she/it] turned from earthy and soft and sandy [places] because of the subsidences that would result from the weights being applied."
Greek Original:
Ὑφιζήσεις: ὑποχαλάσεις, ἐνδόσεις. ἐξέκλινε τὰ γεώδη καὶ μαλακὰ καὶ ψαμμώδη διὰ τὰς ἐσομένας ὑφιζήσεις ἐπὶ τοῖς βάρεσι τοῖς ἐπιτιθεμένοις.
See already epsilon 3974, which contains a shorter version of the quotation (and with a different main verb, ἐφυλάξατο ).
The noun ὑφίζησις is attested several times in the accusative singular in Greek, but no plural forms of the word are found outside these two Suda entries.
