Headword: *mau=ron
Adler number: mu,295
Translated headword: dim
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] something faint, and weak.
Greek Original:
*mau=ron: to\ a)mauro/n, kai\ a)sqene/s.
Notes:
Same entry in Photius (mu148 Theodoridis), and very similar already in Hesychius (mu419).
This variant (here in the neuter singular) of a)mauro/s is also recorded in Herodian, De Prosodia Catholica p. 193 and Philoxenus fr. 433 Theodoridis (though it may well be a fictional form). See LSJ s.v. mauro/s. Chantraine (s.v. a)mauro/s) says "probablement formation inverse de mauro/omai et mauro/w ... qui doit être issu de a)mauro/w par chute de l'initiale." See also alpha 1511, mu 297, sigma 1751.
