Headword: *lh=ros
Adler number: lambda,469
Translated headword: nonsensical, silly
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning one who is] babbling, speaking in vain.[1]
"For many of these things seemed to me silliness and nonsense even from my childhood."[2]
Greek Original:
*lh=ros: flu/aros, mataio/fhmos. polla\ ga/r moi tau=ta kai\ e)k meiraki/wn e)do/kei lh=roi/ te kai\ flh/nafoi.
[1] Likewise in Photius lambda281 Theodoridis, and similarly elsewhere. The headword lh=ros, again as lambda 470, can be either noun or adjective (see LSJ s.v.); the present glossing treats it as an adjective, but in Aelian (see next note) it is used as the noun "trifles, babble". The word mataio/fhmos occurs elsewhere only in Michael Syncellus (C8-9), Encomium in sanctum Isacium et Dalmatum 26.
[2] Aelian fr. 30 Domingo-Forasté (27 Hercher), quoted rather differently at chi 480. See also theta 472.
