[2] Greek Anthology 5.181.6 (Asclepiades), which actually reads w)\ mega/lou kina/dous "O the great rascal!" In this epigram--which is corrupt and somewhat obscure--an impatient host issues instructions to household slaves for an upcoming dinner-party; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 50), (vol. II, 132-134), and another excerpt at tau 1067. As Smyth explains (§2682, web address 1), the relative adverb w(s may be used in exclamations of wonder. The headword appears here as a genitive of cause; cf. Smyth (§2684, web address 2).
