Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] that from a (?)lakaina.
Greek Original:
Λάκαιον ὕδωρ: τὸ ἀπὸ λακαίνης.
An enigmatic entry. Adler offers no enlightenment beyond (a) noting that there is something similar ('cf.') in the Ambrosian Lexicon, and (b) formatting the noun in the gloss as lower-case. Nevertheless, despite b, the adjective Lakaian/Lacaean is surely to be related to Lacaenian, i.e. Spartan (beta 166, lambda 47, etc.). The feminine genitive singular λακαίνης is probably lifted bodily from its occurrence in lambda 47, immediately preceding.
The source of the headword phrase is unidentifiable.
