Greek Original:
Νηπενθές: ἀπενθές. ἄχολόν τε κακῶν ἐπίληθον ἁπάντων.
The headword is a two-ending adjective, here in the neuter nominative/vocative/accusative singular (and masculine/feminine vocative singular); see LSJ s.v. νηπενθής, -ές . It is quoted here from the beginning of a line of Homer: see below.
[1] The gloss is the same form as the headword, from the two-ending adjective ἀπενθής, -ές ; see LSJ s.v. Same gloss in Apollonius's Homeric Lexicon (116.29); Photius, Lexicon nu192 Theodoridis; and Lexica Segueriana 308.27; cf. Hesychius nu497 and the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 4.221 (web address 1). [In her critical apparatus, Adler notes that the glossing word was omitted by mss GM.]
[2] Homer, Odyssey 4.221 (web address 1), used of a drug; cf. Hesychius s.v. ἄχολον (end). [After the quoted passage, mss GFVM append ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀπενθές , meaning without grief (so Adler).]
