Headword: Ληί̈νιος
Adler number: lambda,426
Translated headword: Lenaean, of the wine-press ?
Vetting Status: high

Greek Original:
This unglossed headword may be a corruption of ληναῖος , an epithet of Dionysus. Bernhardy adduced ps.-Zonaras' entry Λήϊνος: ὕμνος. καὶ λήναιος Διόνυσος ; "lêinos: a hymn. And [sc. also attested is] Lenaean Dionysus".
If not, it would be an adjective derived from λήιον "standing crop" or ληίη "plunder".
