Comparable entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (731).
Headword and glossing phrase are in the genitive case. The headword must be quoted from somewhere; Sophocles proffers two instances (Oedipus Tyrannus 1513, Philoctetes 1099), but neither lends itself to the specificity of the glossing phrase.
For the comparative lwi/+wn see also lambda 726, lambda 728.
