Headword: *eu)rwtiw=n
Adler number: epsilon,3713
Translated headword: mouldering
Vetting Status: high
The explanation of the [term] 'mouldering' [is] the [state of] lying neglected. For on things that lie neglected and unattended dew and moisture settle. Such is the life of countryfolk, just as, on the other hand, that of townsfolk is cared-for and clean. For this reason [country life] is continually driven into poverty by the [comic] poets and reproached; as Menander says: "hunger settles on the clean."[1]
