Greek display:    

Headword: Μάδδαν
Adler number: mu,30
Translated headword: barley-cake
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[μάδδα means the same as] μάζα , [i.e.] nourishment. The Megarians [say it] this way with two deltas.
Greek Original:
Μάδδαν: μάζαν, τροφήν. οὕτως οἱ Μεγαρεῖς διὰ δύο δδ.
Notes:
From a scholion on Aristophanes, Acharnians 732, where the headword, accusative case there and again here, is used by a Megarian (web address 1). See again under mu 34, and cf. also mu 35, mu 36.
According to Buck [below] p.71, "Megarian δδ is doubtful (Aristophanes Acharnians μᾶδδα, χρήδδω , but only ζ in inscriptions)."
