[Meaning] that of a zephyr.[1] Also [sc. attested is the phrase] "Zephyrian breath".[2] For Zephyr [is] a gentle wind.[3]
Greek Original:
*zefuri/a pnoh/: tou= zefu/rou. kai\ *zefu/rion pneu=ma. *ze/furos ga\r lei=os a)/nemos.
In this era Zephyros (for which cf. pi 1632) is any westerly wind: see LSJ s.v.
[1] From a scholion on Homer, Odyssey 7.119, where a similar phrase (*Zefuri/h pnei/ousa) occurs. See also Hesychius zeta132, glossing *zefuri/h as h( pnoh\ tou= *zefu/rou.
[2] Likewise in ps.-Herodian and, according to Adler, the Ambrosian Lexicon. This phrase is presumably quoted from somewhere.
[3] Comparably (in broad terms) in other lexica, but no exact parallel. For a wind described as leios cf. pneu=ma lei=on in a sailing metaphor in Aristophanes, Frogs 1002.
