Headword: Λοισθώνη
Adler number: lambda,764
Translated headword: incontinent
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] the bold/rash one.[1]
Greek Original:
Λοισθώνη: ἡ θρασεῖα.
Notes:
[1] Feminine nominative singulars.
The headword is unattested outside lexicography. Of the lexica, Hesychius lambda1248 is the most informative, citing the word in the masculine accusative plural (evidently quoted from somewhere) and glossing it as "those unrestrained in their sexual appetites".
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; gender and sexuality; women
