Headword: Gallaiôi
Adler number: gamma,23
Translated headword: with a Gallian
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] with [something] of the Galli.[1] "Having often offered, with the Gallian howl of Cybele, the cry, hard on the hearing, [that comes] from their mouths, she dedicated these tresses to the mountain goddess at her door, when she thus rested her foot hot from the raving."[2]
Greek Original:
Gallaiôi: tôi tôn Gallôn. Gallaiôi Kubelês ololugmati pollaki dousa ton barun eis akoas êchon apo stomatôn, tasde theêi chaitas peri diklidi thêken oreiai, thermon epei lussês hôd' anepause poda.
The headword, dative singular of a putative adjective *gallai=os, is evidently drawn from the quotation that follows. The only other attestation of any form of the word comes in a poem by Gregory of Nazianzus (PG 37.1572.3) in a probable imitation of the poem cited here (*gallai/hs *kube/lhs o)lolu/gmata ('howls of the Gallian Cybele')).
[1] Though 'Galli' (*ga/lloi) can mean 'Gauls', in the quotation that follows the headword adjective refers to the Galli who were castrated devotees of Cybele; see gamma 41.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.173.3-6 (Rhianos of Bene (rho 158), 7 Gow-Page, fr. 67 Powell); cf. kappa 2588, omicron 540, and theta 7.
