Headword: *)adai=on
Adler number: alpha,431
Translated headword: unfired, Adaios, Adaeus
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] unburnt.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] Adaios, a proper name.[2]

*)adai=on: a)/kauston. kai\ *)adai=os: o)/noma ku/rion.
Same material, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (484, 414).
[1] The primary headword, evidently quoted from somewhere, is masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective. The glossing interprets it as if derived from dai/w, "burn" (delta 112); however, the only entry in LSJ for a)dai=os (web address 1 below) connects it with a)/dhn, "sufficiently", and translates it as "producing surfeit", citing Sophron 137.
[2] The individual in question is probably the C4 BCE Macedonian general of this name, nicknamed Rooster. See principally Theopompus FGrH 115 F249 (quoted by Athenaeus), with N.G.L. Hammond & G.T. Griffith, A History of Macedonia 2 (Oxford 1979) 441. But for another possibility see under alpha 594.
