Greek (Ancient) to Greek (Ancient) translations [PRO]
Greek (Ancient) term or phrase:knee
Since Oidipous means swollen foot, how would Oedipus or rather Oidipous
be called if he had had a swollen knee instead? Oidigon?? (As -gon is
used in the meaning of knee in some medical terms.)
I'm asked this question by a colleague but it is not for a translation.
