Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"And they are holding some wild berries(?) in their hand[s] and washing [them]."
Greek Original:
Μαλῷα: καί τινα διὰ χειρὸς ἔχουσι μαλῷα καὶ καθαίρουσι.
Notes:
Symeon Metaphrastes, Life of St. Euthymius, PG 114.721b (reading μαλώαν ). The rare word also occurs in Cyril's Life of St. Euthymius; Lampe s.v. suggests "wild fruit, wild berries" or "fruit tree or shrub."
This entry is lacking, Adler reports, in mss AF (but added in the margin of A); she indicates it as an interpolation.
