Headword: Ἁβρόν
Adler number: alpha,86
Translated headword: delicate
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
In Herodotus [sc. this means something] beautiful, stubborn, awe-inspiring, dainty.
Greek Original:
Ἁβρόν: παρὰ Ἡροδότῳ καλὸν, αὔθαδες, σεμνὸν, τρυφερόν.
Note:
The headword adjective is neuter nominative (and accusative) singular of alpha 87 (and cf. alpha 88), extracted here from Herodotus 1.71.4 (web address 1), and accompanied by ancient glosses on that passage. In fact, 'luxurious' or 'soft-living' would be more appropriate; cf. ἁβρότατοι in 4.104 (web address 2), and Powell s.v.
