*)/apotis, a)po/tidos.
This word, included in the 1968 Supplement to LSJ ("presumably fem. Adj., abstaining from drink, Suid."), occurs only here, though Adler notes a comparable ('cf.') entry in the Ambrosian Lexicon. Evidently an alpha-privative compound of po/tis (a tipsy woman).
Keywords: daily life; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food; women
