Patriarch Nicephorus's interpretation of Dreams: "Wearing a white robe in sleep is very good. Wearing a black robe is not a good sight. [Wearing] a purple robe leads to a long illness. [Wearing] a red robe leads to a good accomplishment. Wearing a robe of a ruler is a dissolution of hopes."[4]
Greek Original:
Stolion: hê stolê. kai Stolis, stolidos. akrêton thlibôn ê nektar apo stolidôn. kai authis: mê en stoliôi kat' oikon peripatein. lusis oneirôn Nikêphorou patriarchou: stolên leukên kalliston en hupnôi pherein. stolên phorein melainan ou kalê thea. stolên d' halourgon eis makran noson pherei. stolên eruthran eis kalên praxin pherei. stolên phorein anaktos elpidôn lusis.
The primary headword, a neuter noun in the nominative/accusative singular, refers in its few literary attestations not to any sort of 'small robe' but to a poor-quality garment associated particularly with philosophers who cultivate an impecunious persona (see n. 3 below). Of the quotations that make up the bulk of the entry, this word only appears in the second (in the dative case).
[1] This supplementary lemma is related to, and differs little in meaning from, the preceding gloss stolh/. This word appears in the first quotation given (in the genitive plural), but not in the others.
[2] Greek Anthology 7.27.8 (Antipater of Sidon), here with a small but unmetrical inaccuracy: the original lacks the word 'or', i.e. 'undiluted' (which by itself often refers to wine undiluted by water) actually describes the nectar.
[3] Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 1.7.2.
[4] This paragraph, with interpretations drawn from Nicephorus I, Oneirokritikon 106-109 (Adler cites Astrampsychus: alpha 4251), contains neither of the two lemmas, but does have several instances (in the accusative case) of the related word used as the initial gloss in the entry, stolh/.
