Adler number: lambda,415
Translated headword: forgetfulness of dogs (?)
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] of drugs that cause forgetfulness.[1]
"Laying aside forgetfulness of their rash deeds."[2] Meaning [forgetfulness] of having become rash men.
Greek Original:
Λήθην κυνῶν: λήθην ἐμποιούντων φαρμάκων. τῶν τετολμημένων σφίσι λήθην καταχέαντες. ἀντὶ τοῦ τολμητίαι γενόμενοι.
[1] Same gloss in Photius lambda241, where Theodoridis' edition indicates a corruption in the headword. (Certainly what has been transmitted as the genitive plural κυνῶν is very hard to make sense of). See also ps.-Zonaras 1305 s.v. ληθεδανὸν φάρμακον: τὸ λήθην ἐμποῖουν . For the present entry Theodoridis attractively proposes ληθηκέων on the basis of Hesychius lambda809.
[2] Aelian fr. 50c Domingo-Forasté (47 Hercher); already, more fully, at epsilon 1015 (q.v.).
