Headword: Λῴονος
Adler number: lambda,729
Translated headword: better
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Referring to] the stronger argument.
Greek Original:
Λῴονος: τοῦ κρείττονος λόγου.
Notes:
Comparable entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (731).
Headword and glossing phrase are in the genitive case. The headword must be quoted from somewhere; Sophocles proffers two instances (Oedipus Tyrannus 1513, Philoctetes 1099), but neither lends itself to the specificity of the glossing phrase.
For the comparative λωί̈ων see also lambda 726, lambda 728.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; rhetoric; tragedy
