Headword: Ἀί̈στωρ
Adler number: alpha,695
Translated headword: unknowing, unaware
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] inexperienced, unlearned.
Greek Original:
Ἀί̈στωρ: ἄπειρος, ἀμαθής.
Notes:
This adjective is attested in the plural (and governing the genitive case) in Euripides, Andromache 682 (web address 1 below); in the singular (and absolutely) in Plato, Laws 8.845B (web address 2 below). The latter passage, surely, has given rise to the present entry, which is also in other lexica, including Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon.
The Suda repeats the word (with incorrect accentuation) at alphaiota 336.
