Adler number: mu,158
Translated headword: loose, open-textured, rare, sparse

Translation:
"Loose" differs from "firm". See under "firm".[1]
Greek Original:
Μανόν: διαφέρει τὸ μανὸν τοῦ ναστοῦ. ζήτει ἐν τῷ ναστόν.
Note:
[1] nu 44. See also mu 157 for a more concrete definition of μανόν (neuter nominative/accusative singular of the adjective μανός ). Coupled with nu 44, this appears to be the only instance of the two opposites being defined in terms of each other in lexicography; even in literature the adjectives are only contrasted in Nicetas Choniates, Orations 15 p. 148 van Dieten, and Euthymius Protasecretis, Encomium in Mariam Aegyptiacam 8.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; rhetoric
