A proper name.
Greek Original:
*ou)ergi/lios: o)/noma ku/rion.
Roman. Perhaps not surprisingly, the name of its most famous bearer rings no bells for the Byzantine lexicographer (though the learned Photius does mention him, as 'Vergilius Maro the poet'). See also lambda 491 (end), where the name is differently transliterated.
For another Vergilius in a Greek source see Plutarch, Life of Cicero 32.2.
