Adler number: mu,1403
Translated headword: whore
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning a] prostitute.
Greek Original:
Μυλλάς: ἡ πόρνη.
Note:
Same entry in the Synagoge, Photius' Lexicon (mu592 Theodoridis) and the Lexica Segueriana. The headword (cognate with a verb μύλλω mentioned by Eustathius as occurring in Theocritus) is rarer and, apparently, cruder in tone than the gloss.
Keywords: definition; gender and sexuality; poetry; women
