Greek Original:
*prw/i+mos, *prwi+no/n. kai\ prwi+nw=s kai\ *prw/i+on.
A collection of related words, all unglossed. The two primary headwords are (a) the masculine nominative singular (perhaps generic/paradigmatic) of the adjective prw/i+mos and (b) the masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of the adjective prwi+no/s. Then comes an adverb -- attested only here -- deriving from b and the masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular (if the latter, perhaps used adverbially) of the adjective prw/i+os.
It is unclear whether all of these words come from a single precursor of the Suda. A likely source of prw/i+on is Homer, Iliad 15.470 (neuter as adverb there). Otherwise, perhaps material from commentary on Aristophanes, who according to Pollux 7.152 used prw/i+mos in reference to unripe fruit in his lost play Lemnian Women.
The words 'Also earlily and' are lacking, Adler reports, in mss AFV.
For other related words see pi 2939 through pi 2941 and the other entries between pi 2944 and pi 2949.
