Headword: Νεήλατα
Adler number: nu,136
Translated headword: fresh-rolleds
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Barley-cakes recently rolled out and soaked in honey, to which raisins and green chickpeas also were stirred in; these they would distribute to those taking part in the ceremonies. Some used to call them divine and blessed too. By ellipsis the Attic writers proffer 'fresh-rolleds' without adding 'barley-cakes'.
Greek Original:
Νεήλατα: τὰ νεωστὶ ἀληλεσμένα ἄλφιτα καὶ μέλιτι δεδευμένα, οἷς καὶ ἀσταφίδες καὶ χλωροὶ ἐρέβινθοι συνεφύροντο: ἃ τοῖς τὰ ἱερὰ τελοῦσιν ἔνεμον. ἐκάλουν δέ τινες αὐτὰ καὶ ἀμβροσίαν καὶ μακαρίαν. κατ' ἔλλειψιν δὲ προσφέρουσιν οἱ Ἀττικοὶ τὸ νεήλατα μὴ προστιθέντες τὸ ἄλφιτα.
Note:
The headword occurs in Demosthenes 18.260 (web address 1), and this is one of two strands (similar in content but differently arranged) of the lexicographical tradition on it. (For the other see Harpokration s.v.; Photius has both -- nu87-88 Theodoridis.)
