Headword: Μήδεα
Adler number: mu,871
Translated headword: medea
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Means] the genitals and [sc. also] decisions/plans.
Greek Original:
Μήδεα: τὸ αἰδοῖον καὶ τὰ βουλεύματα.
Notes:
Likewise, variously, in other lexica and scholia, and see also Artemidorus 1.45.
The headword -- untranslatable into English in a way that can convey these two senses -- is the plural of μῆδος , which in Greek needs to be regarded as two separate but identical neuter nouns: see LSJ s.v. (A) and (B); and for A, cf. under mu 889.
Compare, for this phenomenon, μῆλον (A) and (B): mu 934, etc.
Keywords: daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; gender and sexuality; medicine
