Headword: Μιμηλά
Adler number: mu,1075
Translated headword: imititative
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[μιμηλά means the same as] μιμητική .[1]
And [there is] a proverb:[2] "neither sculpted nor copied." That is, either a sculpted image nor a painted one.
Also [sc. attested is] μιμηλότατα ["most-copied things"].[3]
Greek Original:
Μιμηλά: μιμητική. καὶ παροιμία: Μήτε πλαστὰν μήτε μιμηλάν. τουτέστι μήτε πλαστὴν εἰκόνα μήτε γραπτήν. καὶ Μιμηλότατα.
Notes:
[1] Something is wrong here: the headword is neuter plural, the gloss feminine singular.
[2] See already at mu 990.
[3] Superlative of the headword adjective, neuter nominative/accusative plural; evidently quoted from somewhere (perhaps Lucian, The Dead Come to Life 36).
Keywords: art history; biography; daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; proverbs
