[Meaning] of Dionysos/Dionysus. [The verb] moru/cai is 'to stain'; inasmuch as he too is stained by the new wine of the grape-clusters and the green figs [sic] in the lees.[1]

Tou Moruchou: Dionusou. moruxai to molunai esti: paroson kakeinos tôi gleukei tôn staphulôn kai tois chlôrois sukois en tôi trugei molunetai.
Notes:
The headword, genitive case of this Sicilian epithet of Dionysos, must be quoted from somewhere.
cf. mu 1266, mu 1343.
[1] Zenobius 5.13 had put this less clumsily, mentioning the figs only after the grapes.
