[1] The headword is a variant of leimw/n (lambda 364); cf. ps.-Herodian and the Lexica Segueriana.
[2] Adler marks the second part of this entry as an interpolation. The comparative adjective leimake/steros is otherwise attested only in the Hippocratic Airs, Waters, and Places 13.13; LSJ s.v. registers it as a false reading for leimakwde/steros.
