1 γέλγιςγέλγις, ἡ, gen. γέλγιθος, also γέλγιος and - ιδος (in codd. freq. with false accent γελγίς, γελγίθος, etc., but cf. Hdn.Gr.1.87): pl.
2 γελγιςγελγις, -ῑδος, -ῑθοςGrammatical information: f.Meaning: `garlic, its cloves' (Thphr.).Origin: PG [a word of Pre-Greek origin]Etymology: The synonym ἄγλις (q. v.) suggests a reduplication *γε-γλις. The variation (ἀ-) cannot be of IE origin. Connection with γαγγλίον (q. v.) is a mere guess. Fur. recalls (123, 127 etc.) σκελλίς, - ίδος (Plu.; also σκελίς Alex. Trall.) with the same meaning which has hitherto been ignored; the form cannot be separated from our word and it further confirms Pre-Greek origin. Note also the suffix with characteristic long vowel.Page in Frisk: 1,295
