Headword: *muda=n
Adler number: mu,1374
Translated headword: to be sodden
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to be moist; to be wet-through and [sc. thus] to rot.[1]
Of the second conjugation of the contracted [verbs]. It also means to swell and to be inflated and to tumesce. Graves, therefore, swell with corpses in accordance with what is inside.[2]
Greek Original:

[1] Likewise in Photius mu570 Theodoridis. The longer glossing phrase is also, earlier, in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon 996a5, s.v. muda=|n (though no form of the word occurs in the extant texts of Plato). See also mu 1375, mu 1377.
[2] This part of the entry is also found in Etymologicum Magnum 593.19-28 -- drawn ultimately from commentary to Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 4.1531, where a participle of the headword's verb appears (cf. ps.-Zonaras s.v. mudale/os). The comment on graves is appropriate to that context.
