"Therefore she dedicates a fawn-skin and this golden cup to Priapus, who judged the beauty-contest".[1]
Greek Original:
Καλλιστεῖα. τοιγὰρ τῷ κρίναντι τὰ καλλιστεῖα Πριάπῳ νευρίδα καὶ χρυσέην τήνδ' ἔθετο προχόην.
The unglossed headword, a neuter plural in the Greek, is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] Greek Anthology 6.292.5-6 (Hedylus), though the Suda reads νευρίδα instead of νεβρίδα ; contrast pi 2936, where it is correct.
