Headword: *mui/agros
Adler number: mu,1364
Translated headword: fly-catcher
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] fly-hunter.
Greek Original:
*mui/agros: o( muioqh/ras.
Same entries (but with mu- rather than mui- spellings, as indeed some of the Suda mss have) in Hesychius mu1772 and Photius mu564 Theodoridis; see also the scholia to Nicander, Theriaca 409, where mua/grous occurs (of a type of snake).
The LSJ entry on this headword documents something entirely different: a hero or deity of this name, or epithet, in Elis (e.g. Pausanias 8.26.7, cf. 5.14.1; Pliny the Elder, Natural History 10.75).
Keywords: definition; geography; poetry; religion; zoology
