Headword: *eu)gra/mmaton o)/noma
Adler number: epsilon,3399
Translated headword: well-written name
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning one] of good omen. But "not well-written" [means] of ill omen;[1] like the [phrase?] Nefersofris, a king of Egypt.[2]
Greek Original:
*eu)gra/mmaton o)/noma: to\ eu)/fhmon. ou)k eu)gra/mmaton de\ to\ du/sfhmon: w(s to\ *nefe/rswfris *ai)gu/ptou basileu/s.
A problematic entry, unparalleled in other lexica. The headword phrase is presumably quoted from somewhere.
[1] This clause seems to interrupt the sense, since 'like...' follows on from '...of good omen'.
[2] cf. tau 762 (where the name is surely distorted).
