Headword: *)askardamukti/
Adler number: alpha,4162
Translated headword: in a clear-eyed manner, with a fixed gaze
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] without blinking [mu/ein], i.e. to gaze fiercely.
Also [sc. attested is the related adjective] a)skarda/mukton ["without shifty eyes"]. Aristophanes [writes]: "look at me without shifty eyes."[1] That is, not blinking your eyes. To twitch and blink the eyes and to wink frequently are called "to be shifty-eyed" [skardamu/ssein] and "to squint" [i)llwpei=n]. So a)skardamu/ktein [means] to look up. In effect, look straight at me.

The rare headword adverb, lost sight of in the rest of the entry, must be quoted from somewhere; extant possibilities include Xenophon and Lucian.
