Headword: Ἀμαιμακέτου
Adler number: alpha,1542
Translated headword: irresistible, stubborn
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] inexhaustible.
In the Epigrams: "he dedicated the horns not torn apart, the support of a stubborn head."[1]
Greek Original:
Ἀμαιμακέτου: ἀκαταπονήτου. ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: οὐ δίχα βύρσας θῆκεν ἀμαιμακέτου κρατὸς ἔρεισμα κέρα.
Notes:
The headword adjective (on which see generally LSJ s.v.) is in the genitive singular, quoted from somewhere. It might be extracted from the quotation given but is more likely to come from Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus 176 (of fire), the scholia to which have the present gloss.
[1] Greek Anthology 6.115.5-6.
