Headword: *eu)kra/s
Adler number: epsilon,3544
Translated headword: temperate
Vetting Status: high
Meaning well-mixed [eu)/kratos].
Greek Original:
*eu)kra/s: a)nti\ tou= eu)/kratos.
The headword adjective, LSJ's eu)kra/s (A), and its glossing one here are etymologically much more similar in the Greek than they sound in translation.
To judge by the scholia there (citing Euripides fr. 197, from the lost Antiope), the headword is extracted from Plato, Critias 112D (where it describes a spring: web address 1). See also Hesychius (epsilon6939), Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon, Photius' Lexicon, ps.-Zonaras, and the Etymologicum Magnum (claiming the word as a rhetorical one).
See also Euripides fr. 504 (from the lost Melanippe); Greek Anthology 12.105.4 (Asclepiades).
