Headword: Μαγώτερα
Adler number: mu,26
Translated headword: more magically
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning more enchantingly.[1] In the Epigrams: "but [Philaenion is] more curly-haired than parsley and more tender-skinned than down and more magically-speaking than the cestus [sc. of Aphrodite]."[2]
Greek Original:
Μαγώτερα: ἀντὶ τοῦ θελκτικώτερα. ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: ἀλλὰ σελίνων οὐλοτέρη καὶ μνοῦ χρῶτα τερεινοτέρη καὶ κεστοῦ φωνεῦσα μαγώτερα.
Notes:
[1] The headword is neuter nominative/accusative comparative of μάγος (mu 25, mu 28), an adjective here used -- as also is the gloss -- adverbially.
[2] Greek Anthology 5.121.1-3 (Philodemos); quoted also at kappa 1428, mu 1175. For the cestus see, besides kappa 1428, kappa 1427.
