Headword: Ὕειον
Adler number: upsilon,76
Translated headword: porcine
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] swinish.[1]
Also [sc. attested in the genitive plural] ὑείων ["pork"], [meaning] of swinish meats.[2] "They ate their fill of pork."[3]
Greek Original:
Ὕειον: χοίρειον. καὶ Ὑείων, χοιρείων κρεῶν. ἐχορτάσθησαν ὑείων.
Notes:
[1] Likewise in the Synagoge (upsilon15) and Photius' Lexicon (upsilon33 Theodoridis). The headword -- neuter nominative/accusative singular or masculine accusative singular of this adjective -- must be quoted from somewhere.
[2] Presumably extracted from the quotation whioh follows (where the plural cannot readily be conveyed in translation). Similar entry in the Ambrosian Lexicon (according to Adler); cf. upsilon 127.
[3] Psalm 16.14 LXX (variant reading).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food; religion; zoology
