The headword (comparative of atimos, masculine accusative singular) is presumably extracted from the end of the first quotation given.
[1] Quotation unidentifiable via the TLG. (Adler's guess was the Epistles of the Emperor Julian.)
[2] Greek Anthology 7.727.3-4 (Theaetetus), with *mi/nw, genitive of the name Minos; the Suda corrupts this to min. For Thersites, the proverbial nobody (in Homer), see theta 257; for Minos, mu 1092.
