Greek display:    

Headword: *lesxhnei/a
Adler number: lambda,310
Translated headword: gossip
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] insolence.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] lesxhnw/ths ["pupil/scholar"], an insolent man.[2]
Greek Original:
*lesxhnei/a: u(/bris. kai\ *lesxhnw/ths, o( u(bristh/s.
Both of the words presented and glossed here are related to le/sxh (lambda 308, lambda 309); the glossing -- also, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon -- interprets both of them surprisingly harshly. See also omicron 343.
[1] Rare word, quoted perhaps from [Plato], Axiochus 369D (where it appears in the genitive case).
[2] Manuscripts of the Suda read lesxhno/ths or lesxhni/ths, but on the basis of Theognostus and the Ambrosian Lexicon Bernhardy proposed (and Adler adopted) the reading lesxhnw/ths (best attested as Diogenes Laertius' favoured word for a philosopher's pupil: 1.43, 2.4-5).
