Headword: *gallai/w|
Adler number: gamma,23
Translated headword: with a Gallian
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] with [something] of the Galli.[1] "Having often offered, with the Gallian howl of Cybele, the cry, hard on the hearing, [that comes] from their mouths, she dedicated these tresses to the mountain goddess at her door, when she thus rested her foot hot from the raving."[2]
Greek Original:
*gallai/w|: tw=| tw=n *ga/llwn. *gallai/w| *kube/lhs o)lolu/gmati polla/ki dou=sa to\n baru\n ei)s a)koa\s h)=xon a)po\ stoma/twn, ta/sde qeh=| xai/tas peri\ dikli/di qh=ken o)rei/a|, qermo\n e)pei\ lu/sshs w(=d' a)ne/pause po/da.
The headword, dative singular of a putative adjective *gallai=os, is evidently drawn from the quotation that follows. The only other attestation of any form of the word comes in a poem by Gregory of Nazianzus (PG 37.1572.3) in a probable imitation of the poem cited here (*gallai/hs *kube/lhs o)lolu/gmata ('howls of the Gallian Cybele')).
[1] Though 'Galli' (*ga/lloi) can mean 'Gauls', in the quotation that follows the headword adjective refers to the Galli who were castrated devotees of Cybele; see gamma 41.
