Adler number: mu,995
Translated headword: with wisdom
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] with counsel.[1] The nominative [singular] [is] μῆτις , [meaning] counsel, good judgment, intelligence.[2]
Greek Original:
Μήτι: τῇ βουλῇ. ἡ εὐθεῖα ἡ Μῆτις, βουλή, γνώμη, σύνεσις.
[1] The dative singular of μῆτις (evidently quoted here from somewhere, probably Homer: see e.g. Iliad 23.315, Odyssey 13.299) is paroxytone because the final iota is long, as it is a contraction of μήτιϊ : LSJ s.v.
[2] Likewise or similarly in other lexica: see the references at Photius mu421 Theodoridis. See also mu 997 (end).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic
