Headword: Ἀμαθέστερος
Adler number: alpha,1467
Translated headword: more ignorant, rather ignorant
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Also [sc. attested] is ἀμαθής ; meaning uneducated and unprepared; Plato [sc. uses the word].[1] It is also applied to one who is poorly educated and to someone not educated who understands by instinct.
Greek Original:
Ἀμαθέστερος. καὶ Ἀμαθής: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀπαίδευτος καὶ ἀκόσμητος: Πλάτων. τάσσεται δὲ καὶ ἐπὶ τοῦ δυσμαθοῦς καὶ ἐπὶ τοῦ μὴ μαθόντος, φύσει δὲ ἐπισταμένου.
Notes:
The unglossed headword is the comparative (masculine nominative singular) of the adjective featured in the body of the entry (which is also in Photius); cf. already alpha 1466 and again alpha 1469.
In Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon both ἀμαθέστερος and ἀμαθής share this glossing, which suggests that ἀμαθέστερος also (cf. below) comes from Plato; if so, from Republic 409D.
[1] Plato, Apology 22E.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; philosophy
