Notes:
cf. already eta 203. The present entry, on a poetic adjective, is almost certainly an Homeric gloss (see also Hesychius eta343, Etymologicum Magnum 59,45); vocative in Odyssey 2.243, Iliad 15.228; with transitive meaning "making people crazy", referring to wine, in Homer, Odyssey 14.464 (cf. scholia thereto, and Hesychius eta331).
Form ἠλεὴς in Hesychius eta342; Doric form ἀλεός at Hesychius alpha2737, from Aeschylus (fr.410).
