Headword: Μαγῆα
Adler number: mu,11
Translated headword: wiper
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] that which wipes [something] off.[1] "[...] and the wiper sponge lying under a sturdy knife."[2]
Greek Original:
Μαγῆα: τὸν ἀπομάσσοντα. τόν τε μαγῆα σπόγγον ὑπὸ στιβαρᾷ κεκλιμένον κοπίδι.
Notes:
[1] The headword is poetic accusative singular of μαγεύς , presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.306.5-6 (Ariston): Spinther the cook dedicates the tools of his trade to Hermes; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (42-43) and vol. II (110-111). The quotation at alpha 4064 immediately precedes this passage, and one at alpha 1146 immediately follows it. See further extracts from this epigram at beta 34, theta 539, pi 3007, tau 73, tau 74, tau 799, chi 620, and omega 294. Gow and Page (vol. I, 42) note that the Anthologia Palatina reads the headword as μαγεῖα while the Anthologia Planudea transmits μαγῆαν .
