Greek display:    

Headword: *laieto/n
Adler number: lambda,177
Translated headword: antique (?)
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] that which is ancient(?).
Greek Original:
*laieto/n: to\ a)rxai=on.
Neuter nominative/accusative singulars. For the headword's intensifying prefix lai- cf. lambda 187, lambda 188. The present compound, unattested outside lexicography, presumably means 'of excessive years' (cf. epsilon 3329).
[But NB: Dr Nick Nicholas suggests a quite different interpretation of this entry, citing Hesychius lambda163 s.v. la/iton: a)rxei=on and ps.-Zonaras lai/eton: to\ a)rxei=on; see under lambda 202.]
