Hi ya,


  I ran across this last night and nearly filed a correction on it. But this is not broken. But I don't understand exactly what I'm seeing and I'm hoping someone might be able to point me to an explanation. In some entries in the LSJ lexicon one sees things like this :


ἀποσκευή, ἡ, removal, riddance, i.e. assassination, J. AJ 18.2.4.

II baggage, in sg. and pl., Plb. 2.3.7, 1.66.7, Plu. 2.174a, etc.; household stuff, LXX Ge. 34.29, UPZ 110iii90 (ii B.C.), etc.; δόμων ἀ. Ezek. Exag. 209 .

III ordure, filth, v.l. Str. 14.1.37. [Scanned ^ _ ^ _ by Ezek. l.c.]


Now the section I've marked in bold is the point in question. I know from the abbreviations that Ezek. l.c mean :


Ezekiel Poeta Judaeus [Ezek.]    ii B.C.

l. c., ll. cc. = loco citato, locis citatis


And I believe that Scanned indicates how one should scan (roughly I interpret as, pronounce in meter or verse) the word in verse context. What should one make of ^ _ ^ _ ? These marks are not present with all "scanned" indications but these and others do occur. I cannot find an explanation in the book itself of what these mean. I do see this in the VI. Signs, etc. section:


[ ] Between these brackets stand the Prosodial remarks


but that does not explain the content.


Anyone know where I can find this out ?

Someone needs to look at a hard copy as the online versions show the same text. (I just searched Google for "removal, riddance, i.e. assassination").

Here's a picture of a hard copy, ninth edition (1940), 1983 printing. Neither the main section nor the supplement have any mention of these symbols.Attached File  LSJ.JPG   177.42KB   0 downloads
