[A term for] the free man among the Spartans.
Greek Original:

Notes:
A liberated helot, in fact, whose new "citizen" status made him instantly into a soldier. The category was perhaps created during the Archidamian War (431-421 BC) and continues to be mentioned until the 370s.
The present gloss comes from the scholia on Thucydides 7.58.3, where the plural of the headword occurs (web address 1); cf. Pollux 3.83.
