Headword: *(hmima/llones
Adler number: eta,336
Translated headword: Mimallones
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] maenads, nymphs, or bacchants.
Greek Original:
*(hmima/llones: maina/des, nu/mfai, h)\ ba/kxai.
See also Hesychius (eta500) and Photius (Lexicon eta164) -- both presenting as headword not the Suda's single word h(mima/llones but the two-word phrase (presumably quoted from somewhere) h)\ *Mima/llones. The initial eta is thus a mistake: cf. kappa 1829 and mu 1072.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; religion; women
