Headword: Alôpekianos
Adler number: alpha,1387
Translated headword: Foxy, Mangy
Vetting Status: high
Also [sc. attested is] a)lwpeki/a, a head-covering.[1]
Greek Original:
Alôpekianos: kai Alôpekia, hê perikephalaia.
The unglossed headword, perhaps a name or nickname, is otherwise unattested. As it is not necessarily connected with what follows, its meaning is unclear. (For Foxy cf. alpha 1388; for Mangy see LSJ s.v. a)lwpeki/a.)
[1] Other lexica, e.g. Hesychius, define alopekiai as fox-earths, but the gloss here does not lend itself to that. Either what is envisaged is a head covered with mange or else a fox-skin cap.
