Headword: *eu)ma/reia
Adler number: epsilon,3574
Translated headword: convenience
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] agreeability.[1]
Also a term for orderliness in Marcus [Aurelius] Antoninus.[2]
And in the Epigrams: "a slipper not long-robed."[3]
Greek Original:
*eu)ma/reia: h( eu)koli/a. le/getai de\ kai\ h( eu)kosmi/a para\ *ma/rkw| *)antwni/nw|. kai\ e)n *)epigra/mmasi: ou) baqu/peplos eu)/maris.
For the headword cf. epsilon 3573, epsilon 3575, epsilon 3577, and LSJ s.v.
[1] Glossed differently, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (2499).
[2] Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 4.3.2 (web address 1).
[3] The quotation (Greek Anthology 7.413.3-4) is from the epigram on Hipparchia (cf. iota 517), wife of Krates (kappa 2341), both of whom were Cynic philosophers. The phrase does not contain the present headword but merely another word similar to it, eu)/maris, 'an Asiatic shoe or slipper' (LSJ s.v.); the word (again under epsilon 3577) appears to be non-Greek in origin (cf. LSJ; Gow and Page, vol. II, p. 88). Along with the two main sources of the Greek Anthology (Anthologia Palatina and Anthologia Planudea), the Suda transmits baqu/peplos, long-robed (cf. beta 36, LSJ s.v.); however, the entry should evidently read baqu/pelmos, thick-soled, as Salmasius [Claude de Saumaise, 1588-1653] observes in his critical apparatus to the Anthologia Palatina (Gow and Page, vol. I, p. 34 and note).
