Notes:
[1] The headword is neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective. It must be quoted from somewhere (other than the epigram given, which has the masculine nominative singular); probably Homer, Iliad 10.23.
[2] Greek Anthology 7.208.1-3 (Anyte), here carelessly quoted; mu 597 does better in some respects, worse in others.
