Headword: Ἀγάλακτες
Adler number: alpha,128
Translated headword: milkmates
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] those who are members of the same family, blood-kin, brothers. But others [sc. define the terms as] those sharing priesthoods and [sc. who are also] fellow-family-members. But some [sc. define it as] those brought up together.[1]
Greek Original:
Ἀγάλακτες: ὁμογενεῖς, ὅμαιμοι, ἀδελφοί. ἄλλοι δὲ τοὺς ἱερείων κοινωνοὺς καὶ συγγενεῖς. οἱ δὲ συντρόφους.
Notes:
See LSJ s.v. ἀγάλαξ and ἀγάλακτος at web addresses 1 & 2. The present headword, a nominative plural, is evidently extracted from somewhere -- probably from its only attested instance outside lexica (etc.): Callimachus, Hymns 2.52.
cf. generally gamma 17.
[1] Same material in Eudemus, partially in other lexica.
