Greek Original:

The headword participle occurs in one of the Letters of Epicurus (Diogenes Laertius 10.127). The present gloss is hard to fathom, but the Etymologicum Gudianum has a similar gloss for mwkw=. Adler says that the Ambrosian Lexicon has a different gloss.
For the verb cf. under mu 1319.
