[Meaning] that of Lucullus.
Greek Original:

For the best-known Lucullus, see lambda 688. The present headword, a neuter adjective used as a noun, is not otherwise attested in the singular, but for the plural see Appian, Mithridatica 331: the Loukoulleia festival in Kyzikos (cf. kappa 2627). The singular, here, is likely to mean L's tomb or a temple in his honour; cf. analogously e.g. kappa 1622.
