Headword: Γεννούστης
Adler number: gamma,153
Translated headword: family-member
Vetting Status: high
Such as a father, or relative, or grandson; best to take it as the last [of these].
Greek Original:
Γεννούστης: οἷον γεννήτης, ἢ συγγενὴς, ἢ ἔγγονος: τὸ τελευταῖον ἐκδέχεσθαι ἄμεινον.
The headword γεννούστης is a misreading, in this and earlier lexica, of γένους τῆς in Plato, Philebus 30D -- where in any event genos means not "family" but "kind/sort/type". See the scholia to the line (and cf. already gamma 146).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; philosophy
