- A stormy northeasterly wind mentioned in the Bible (Acts 27:14); any rough wind or storm.
1851, Herman Melville, Moby-Dick:
- It stood on a sharp bleak corner, where that tempestuous wind Euroclydon kept up a worse howling than ever it did about poor Paul's tossed craft. Euroclydon, nevertheless, is a mighty pleasant zephyr to any one in-doors, with his feet on the hob quietly toasting for bed.
