Headword: Λασίοις
Adler number: lambda,137
Translated headword: shaggy
Vetting Status: high
The saying [is] about Philoctetes: "This man perhaps second to none of the first-born families, lies ill-fated [more] than all in life, alone [far] from others, with dappled or shaggy beasts."[1]
Greek Original:
Λασίοις: περὶ Φιλοκτήτου ὁ λόγος: οὗτος πρωτογόνων ἴσως οἴκων οὐδενὸς ὕστερος, πάντων ἄμμορος ἐν βίῳ κεῖται, μοῦνος ἀπ' ἄλλων, στικτῶν ἢ λασίων μετὰ θηρίων.
The unglossed headword is the dative plural of the adjective λάσιος (cf. lambda 134, lambda 136), but the passage quoted uses the genitive plural. Presumably, therefore, the headword is extracted from somewhere else. There is no equivalent entry in Photius, but note Hesychius lambda365: λασίοισι: δασέσι: 'στήθεσι λασίοισ' (a version of στήθεσσιν λασίοισι in Homer, Iliad 1.189).
[1] Sophocles, Philoctetes 180-185.
