Headword: *)agrote/ras
Adler number: alpha,370
Translated headword: of wilde
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] of wild.[1]
In the Epigrams: "Dionysos himself dedicated to you this club of wilde olive[-wood]."[2]
Greek Original:
*)agrote/ras: a)gri/ou. e)n *)epigra/mmasi: tou=to/ soi a)grote/rhs *dionu/sios au)to\s e)lai/hs qh=ke r(o/palon.
The headword, genitive singular, is presumably extracted from the quotation given (where it appears as a)grote/rhs).
[1] An uncommon (and poetic) adjective with this meaning is glossed with a common one.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.3.3-4 (Dionysius), the dedication of an olive-wood club to Heracles; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (81) and vol. II (234-235); cf. another excerpt from this epigram at pi 2954. It is possible that the epigrammatist is indeed the dedicator, but it is unlikely that they are just namesakes, and, in any case, Gow and Page suggest (ibid.) that the epigram's attribution is suspicious.
