Adler number: lambda,312
Translated headword: baneful
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning ones that are] lethal, harsh.[1] "For with prayers she called upon you to take the pains of baneful death far away from her in her labour".[2]

Greek Original:
Λευγαλέας: ὀλεθρίους, χαλεπάς. ὥς σε μετ' εὐχωλαῖς ἐκαλέσσατο λευγαλέας τοι κῆρας ἀπ' ὠδίνων τῆλε βαλεῖν λοχίων. καὶ Λευγαλέος, ὁ χαλεπός.
Notes:
[1] The headword is feminine accusative plural of this adjective, presumably extracted from the quotation given (though see also e.g. Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 1.295). The glosses are paralleled in other lexica and in the scholia to Homer, Iliad 13.97 (where the genitive singular occurs).
[2] Greek Anthology 6.270.3-4 (addressed to the goddess of childbirth). Read οἷ "her" instead of the Suda's τοι "you".
[3] cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 21.281.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; gender and sexuality; poetry; religion; women
