Headword: Εἰδαλίμας
Adler number: epsiloniota,18
Translated headword: shapely
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] intelligent.
Greek Original:
Εἰδαλίμας: συνετάς.
The headword is the rare adjective εἰδάλιμος , here in the feminine accusative plural; quoted from Homer, Odyssey 24.279 (web address 1). LSJ translates the adjective as if from εἶδος "appearance"; the scholiast translates it as if from οἶδα "I know." In context there, either interpretation is possible; but for the former cf. epsiloniota 19 (and Greek Anthology 7.491.4).
