Headword: *(oplo/teros
Adler number: omicron,469
Translated headword: younger, rather young
Vetting Status: high
It is applied to both in Homer, [i.e.] both as comparative and as absolute.[1] [Homer writes] "of the younger Graces," since Homer assumes two generations of Graces, an elder and a younger. For this reason he says "younger" comparatively.[2]
