Notes:
The headword is a feminine noun in the nominative (and vocative) singular; see generally LSJ s.v. The glossators, as we see, were not agreed on whether it was or was not an admirable quality.
[1] The headword is identically glossed in the Synagoge, Photius' Lexicon (mu166 Theodoridis), and the Lexica Segueriana; cf. Hesychius (mu472 and mu478) and ps.-Zonaras 1343.4-5.
[2] (Lacking, Adler reports, in mss AF.) Like the two previous glosses, this is a feminine noun in the nominative (and vocative) singular; cf. mu 369 (end).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics
