Headword: *)aeikh/lion
Adler number: alpha,624
Translated headword: unsuitable, shameful
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] that which is indecorous.
Greek Original:
*)aeikh/lion: to\ a)prepe/s.
Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon.
The headword -- neuter nominative/accusative singular -- is apparently a conflation of a)eike/lios (see alpha 620) and a)ekh/lios (see alpha 543), which are metrically convenient variants of a poetic form of a)eikh/s. Unlike the other two, this form could not have been used in hexameter verse.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; meter and music; poetry
