Headword: Γάλα
Adler number: gamma,20
Translated headword: milk
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Milk] disperses the conspiracies of hostile people. Milk is a fosterer of mild manners.
Greek Original:
Γάλα σκεδάζει δυσμενῶν συμβουλίας. Γάλα γαληνῶν πρόξενον πέλει τρόπων.
Note:
A dream interpretation (or perhaps two separate interpretations) in the form of proverb-like sentiments cast in iambic verse, the latter playing upon on the similarity of the words for milk, γάλα , and mild, γαληνῶν . The 'disperses' version (cf. sigma 553) comes from Nicephorus I, Dream Book gamma19; the 'fosterer' version is like gamma18 there.
