Headword: Λεοντεία δορά
Adler number: lambda,251
Translated headword: lion's hide
Vetting Status: high
"He immediately put on the lionskin."[1]
Greek Original:
Λεοντεία δορά. ὁ δὲ τὴν λεοντείαν αὐτίκα περιεβάλετο.
With the unglossed headword phrase cf. generally lambda 253. Hesychius lambda647 glosses the phrase 'λεόντειος (sic) δορά ' with 'its skin'. The adjective itself can mean anything pertaining to a lion or more specifically (as in the quotation here) its skin.
[1] Quotation unidentifiable. Adler suggests Symeon Metaphrastes; alternatively, perhaps, referring to Heracles (see eta 475)?.
