The headword, a masculine noun related to the verb punqa/nomai (pi 3134, pi 3135, pi 3141, pi 3173, pi 3174, pi 3175), has its earliest attestation in the 1st or 2nd century AD. The gloss is a transliteration of Latin mandator, "one who instigates or suborns accusers or informers" (Lewis & Short s.v. and mu 135). Adler reports the same gloss in the Ambrosian Lexicon, and compares a scholion on Lucian, Phalaris 1.10 (6.8-10 Rabe), where the accusative plural of the headword occurs. See also tau 423.
