Thanks for the response. It seems to me, though, that what Zerwick (p. 17,
45, not 46) and Young are saying is that the traditional view (i.e.,
"subterranean") is NOT correct.

Zerwick does define this genitive as:

        ..."epexegetic" genitive or genitive of apposition (i.e., in which
        the substantive added in the genitive is in reality an apposition
        denoting the same person or thing as the substantive to which the
        genitive is attached, as in the English usage "city of Rome," with
        which contrast the Latin "urbs Roma")... (45)
