Headword: Μάζης ὤνιον
Adler number: mu,36
Translated headword: on sale for a barley-loaf
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Referring to] a sale of bread.
Greek Original:
Μάζης ὤνιον: ἄρτου πρᾶσις.
Note:
Same entry in Hesychius (mu48), Photius (mu19 Theodoridis), and the Lexica Segueriana. Otherwise, as a TLG search shows, the headword phrase is only attested in -- and thus surely quoted from -- Gregory of Nazianzus, Encomium of St. Athanasius 21.16 (PG 35.1100). It is a derogatory expression applied to Georgios, the Arian bishop of Alexandria; cf. kappa 325.
