Headword: Μέμβλωκε
Adler number: mu,556
Translated headword: has come
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] is staying.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] μεμβλωκός ["having come"], [meaning something] arriving, constructed with care.[2]
Greek Original:
Μέμβλωκε: παραμένει. καὶ Μεμβλωκός, παραγενόμενον, μετ' ἐπιμελείας κατασκευασθέν.
Notes:
[1] Homer, Odyssey 17.190; so glossed in the Etymologicum Magnum (considered as citing Herodian, περὶ παθῶν p. 283 Lentz).
[2] Callimachus, Hecale fr. 304 Pfeiffer: "and about their head there was set a new round hat having come from Haemonia [alphaiota 204], a defence against the midday heat." The gloss "constructed with care" arises from confusion with μέμβλετο "he has taken care", already seen in mu 555. It is of course impossible here, as it would have the hat doing the constructing.
