Greek Original:
Μεμυκότα: κρύψαντα, καμμύσαντα: ἢ κεκολλημένα. καὶ Ὅμηρος: σὺν δ' ἕλκεα πάντα μέμυκεν. ἐκ παρατηρήσεως Ὅμηρός φησι τῶν ἐν πολέμῳ τρωθέντων τὰ τραύματα μὴ μύειν, μόνου δὲ τοῦ Ἕκτορος κατὰ θείαν πρόνοιαν. καὶ ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: τὸν πάρος Ὀρβηλοῖ μεμυκότα δειράσι ταῦρον. ἀντὶ τοῦ μυκηθμῷ χρώμενον, μυκώμενον.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica: see the references at Photius mu266 Theodoridis. The headword is perfect active participle of μύω (a verb often used of eyes: see LSJ s.v.), in the neuter nominative/accusative plural or masculine accusative singular. It must be extracted from somewhere (other than the epigram quoted below: see n. 4). Theodoridis (above) notes Coraes' suggestion that the third glossing participle, transmitted as κεκολλημένα , should be κεκαλυμμένον .
[2] Homer, Iliad 24.420 (web address 1); cf. the corresponding scholia.
[3] Greek Anthology 6.115.1; also quoted at delta 361 and omicron 501. Orbelos (which is also referred to in beta 412), modern-day Slavyanka or Ὄρβηλος , is located on the border of southwestern Bulgaria and northernmost Greece. See location at web address 2.
[4] The participle in this quotation comes from μύζω "mutter, moan."
