Headword: Χειριδωτός
Adler number: chi,244
Translated headword: handed, sleeved
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] that which has hands.
Greek Original:
Χειριδωτός: ὁ χειρωτός.
The headword usually has the meaning "having sleeves" (see LSJ s.v. at web address 1 below, and cf. alpha 1744, chi 320). As the gloss means "having hands", LSJ defines the Suda's use of the headword to mean the same. However, both the headword and the gloss are derived from the same stem, χείρ ("hand"), so it is possible that in later Greek usage, χειρωτός meant "sleeved" as did the headword χειριδώτος .
