Translated headword: childish
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] infantile; in poetic style.[1]

Greek Original:
Νηπύτιος: νήπιος: ποιητικῶς. ἐστερημένος τοῦ πεπνῦσθαι. Ἀριστοφάνης Νεφέλαις: νηπύτιος γάρ ἐστι καὶ τῶν κρεμάθρων οὐ τρίβων τῶνδε.
Notes:
[1] The headword is a diminutive of νήπιος (attested mainly in epic; see e.g. Homer, Iliad 13.292, with the scholia there).
[2] From the margin of ms M, according to Adler (perhaps a comment from the scholarly owner/scribe of M); and not in the Clouds scholia (see next note).
[3] A close approximation of Aristophanes, Clouds 868-9, with scholia; likewise in other lexica and scholia.
