Οὐρανός. ἀπὸ τοῦ οὐρεῖν καὶ φυλάττειν πάντα, καὶ κηπωρὸς, καὶ θυρωρὸς, παρὰ τὸ οὐρεῖν. Ἡσίοδος· Γαῖα μέν τοι πρῶτον ἐγείνατο ἶσον αὑτῇ Οὐρανὸν ἀστερόενθ’, ἵνα μιν περὶ πάντα καλύπτῃ. καὶ οὖρος ὁ φύλαξ ἐν τοῖς ἀγροῖς. ὅροι λέγονται οἱ φυλάττοντες τὸ ἴδιον ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀλλοτρίου. οὕτως Ἡρακλείδης ὁ Ποντικός
