[mimhla/ means the same as] mimhtikh/.[1]

*mimhla/: mimhtikh/. kai\ paroimi/a: *mh/te plasta\n mh/te mimhla/n. toute/sti mh/te plasth\n ei)ko/na mh/te grapth/n. kai\ *mimhlo/tata.
[1] Something is wrong here: the headword is neuter plural, the gloss feminine singular.
[2] See already at mu 990.
[3] Superlative of the headword adjective, neuter nominative/accusative plural; evidently quoted from somewhere (perhaps Lucian, The Dead Come to Life 36).
