Vetting Status: high
Meaning more/rather mean, more/rather artless. "You should say nothing at all to anyone of those who ask you to speak until I come. If you should not obey me, you will speak with [me] unwilling, you will make me more/rather dishonored."[1]

Greek Original:
Atimoteron: anti tou eutelesteron, atechnoteron. mêdena mêdotioun tôn eresthai deomenôn eipêis mêden, est' an aphikômai. ei de mê moi prosexois, ereis de akontos, atimoteron me thêseis. ein aïdai gar min ho Thersitês ouden atimoteros.
The headword (comparative of atimos, masculine accusative singular) is presumably extracted from the end of the first quotation given.
[1] Quotation unidentifiable via the TLG. (Adler's guess was the Epistles of the Emperor Julian.)
[2] Greek Anthology 7.727.3-4 (Theaetetus), with *mi/nw, genitive of the name Minos; the Suda corrupts this to min. For Thersites, the proverbial nobody (in Homer), see theta 257; for Minos, mu 1092.
