Headword: Ἐρωμανής
Adler number: epsilon,3065
Translated headword: love-maddened
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] one who is being driven mad [sc. when] in love.
Greek Original:
Ἐρωμανής: ὁ ἐν τῷ ἔρωτι μαινόμενος.
Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. In ps.-Zonaras this same glossing phrase is attached to two adverbs, ἐρωμανῶς and ἐρωτομανῶς , neither of them otherwise attested.
Here in the Suda the headword is an adjective -- as indeed is a better fit with the gloss -- but a rare one. For an apparent instance in prose see Diodorus Siculus 30.22.1 (with the standard emendation by Valesius from ἐρωμένην to ἐρωμανῆ ), on L. Aemilius Paullus' passionate feelings for his son, Scipio Africanus the Younger. Otherwise ἐρωμανής is characteristic of late poetry: Oppian and, especially, Nonnus.
