Greek display:    

Headword: Λαγίδης
Adler number: lambda,16
Translated headword: hare-ish, leveret; Lagid
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The [sc. offspring] of the hare.
Greek Original:
Λαγίδης: ὁ τοῦ λαγωοῦ.
Note:
Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (53). The glossing shows that the headword is construed in the lower-case senses translated above, i.e. connected with the noun λαγώς (lambda 15, lambda 28, lambda 29, lambda 30, etc.) However, such a term is otherwise unattested, and on the whole grammarians and scholiasts regard it, rather, as a patronymic from the name Lagos. For the best-known bearer of that name see lambda 25: Lagos the Macedonian, who gave his name to the Hellenistic dynasty founded in Egypt by his son Ptolemy I Soter (“Savior”) 367/66-283/82 -- who has no entry of his own. For this see e.g. Strabo 17.1.10: the deaths of Antony and Cleopatra end the long 'empire of the Lagidai.'
