Vetting Status: high
[genitive] λείμακος . [Meaning] a densely-planted place, a garden.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] λειμακέστεροι ["more/rather meadowy"], [meaning] places densely-planted and full of trees.[2]
Greek Original:
Λείμαξ, λείμακος. ὁ σύμφυτος τόπος, ὁ κῆπος. καὶ Λειμακέστεροι, οἱ σύμφυτοι καὶ σύνδενδροι τόποι.
[1] The headword is a variant of λειμών (lambda 364); cf. ps.-Herodian and the Lexica Segueriana.
[2] Adler marks the second part of this entry as an interpolation. The comparative adjective λειμακέστερος is otherwise attested only in the Hippocratic Airs, Waters, and Places 13.13; LSJ s.v. registers it as a false reading for λειμακωδέστερος .
