Headword: *gla/gos
Adler number: gamma,276
Translated headword: milk
Vetting Status: high
[gla/gos means the same as] ga/la.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] glagerw=n ["of milk-white (ones)"], meaning of white [ones]. In the Epigrams: "and a springe-net of [= for] milk-white cranes."[2]
Greek Original:
*gla/gos: ga/la. kai\ *glagerw=n, a)nti\ tou= leukw=n. e)n *)epigra/mmasi: a)/rkun te glagerw=n laimope/dan gera/nwn.
[1] Likewise in other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon. From the scholia to Homer, Iliad 2.471 [= 16.643], where the headword occurs.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.109.8 (where in fact the adjective is klagerw=n, "screeching"). On this epigram, an Arcadian hunter's dedication to Pan, see Gow and Page vol. I (44-45), vol. II (63-65), and another excerpt from this epigram at alpha 1758. As Gow and Page note (vol. I, 45), the Suda follows the Anthologia Palatina (AP) and the Anthologia Planudea in transmitting glagerw=n, but they follow the emendation given by the AP scribe designated C (the Corrector) in reading klagerw=n (ibid.). The LSJ s.v. ge/ranos (web address 1) identifies the fowler's screeching gamebird as the Common Crane, Grus cinerea (grus), a common spring and fall migrant through Greece. The Common Crane is not milk-white, however, but slate-gray in color; the Corrector's emendation is very well motivated if not certain; cf. Gow and Page, vol. II (65) and Thompson (41). On the identity of the epigram's author, see alpha 1758 note.
