Headword: Λαιδρός
Adler number: lambda,175
Translated headword: brash, impudent
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] rash.[1]
Greek Original:
Λαιδρός: ὁ θρασύς.
The headword adjective occurs in hellenistic poetry, e.g. Callimachus and Nicander, and it is similarly glossed in the scholia to the latter (Theriaca 689); see also Hesychius lambda123 and lambda124. (Both of these Hesychius entries also associate the word with ἀριστερά or ἀριστερός , one of several terms meaning 'left'; cf. lambda 174, lambda 193. Did the lexicographer searching Hesychius or a similar author for λαι- words, associate the present adjective, λαιδρός with λαιός , 'left', because they stood in proximity to one another?)
[1] The definite article before θρασύς seems only to identify it as masculine, nominative singular.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; poetry
