A.prop, stay, support, E.Fr.1111: pl., Plb.8.4.6; stanchion or strut in torsion-engines, Ph.Bel.76.16, Hero Bel.101.9; “ἀρκύωνX.Cyn.10.7; in Th.7.36 ἀντηρίδες are stay-beams fixed inside a ship's bow, and projecting beyond it, so as to support and strengthen the ἐπωτίδες.
II.=θυρίς, window, Suid.:—and in E.Rh.785 it must mean nostrils, if it be the right reading. [ι^δος E. hence ἀντήρειδες in Apollod.Poliorc.178.4, Hero Bel.101.9, is wrong; so -είδιον ib.89.4 is f.l. for -ίδιον as Inscrr. show.] (-ηρι^δ = -ερι^δ-, weak form of stem of ἐρείδω (cf. ἔρις).)
