Greek Original:
Μεγαλήτωρ: μεγαλόψυχος.
The headword μεγαλήτωρ is a masculine and feminine noun in the nominative singular; see generally LSJ s.v. A common epic epithet of heroes (Cunliffe s.v., p. 256), its appearance here is generated by Homer, Iliad 2.547, where it occurs in the genitive singular μεγαλήτορος (web address 1), glossed in the scholia there by the same adjective used here: see next note.
[1] The gloss is a two-ending adjective in the masculine and feminine nominative singular; see LSJ s.v., mu 371 gloss, and a comparative at mu 372. Same or similar glossing in other lexica: see the references at Photius mu165 Theodoridis.
