Greek display:    

Headword: *)/aeiros
Adler number: alpha,637
Translated headword: unstrung, unorganized (?)
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] he who/that which is indefinite.[1]
Greek Original:
*)/aeiros: o( a)/peiros.
Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. Hesychius has an analogous one (alpha1305), glossing the dative plural a)ei/rois with a)pei/rois.
The headword, related to the verb ei)/rw, is unattested outside lexicography. See web address 1 for the (non-committal) LSJ entry; cf. alpha 639.
[1] Or "inexperienced"? It is not clear which sense of a)/peiros is intended by the gloss: possibly "unstrung" (as of a collection of beads), implying not in order, hence indefinite.
