Adler number: eta,395
Translated headword: flowered
Vetting Status: high
"For they will not recognise you for a long time, nor will they suspect [you] thus flowered." Some [understand] the "flowered" as happening to the [man's] head, e.g. flowered in grey hairs. But this [is] incredible: for he would have been recognised, even if he was so altered in the head. It seems to me, therefore, that the "flowered" means dressed. [i.e.] so they will never recognise you in such a form. If we were to accept the "flowered" as referring to age, its application is not to the hair but to the whole body.
