Exodus 16:13

Ἐγένετο δὲ ἑσπέρα, καὶ ἀνέβη ὀρτυγομήτρα καὶ ἐκάλυψεν τὴν παρεμβολήν· τὸ πρωὶ ἐγένετο καταπαυομένης τῆς δρόσου κύκλῳ τῆς παρεμβολῆς,

Then it was evening, and quail came up and covered the camp; when the morning came the dew ceased around the camp,

ויהי בערב ותעל השׂלו ותכס את־המחנה ובבקר היתה שׁכבת הטל סביב למחנה׃


*   ὀρτυγομήτρα : a bird which migrates with quails, perhaps corncrake, landrail, Rallus crex (LSJ and cf. LSG s.v. ‘giant quail’)
*   came up OR went up OR ascended
