Headword: Νωγαλέον
Adler number: nu,528
Translated headword: attractive, dainty
Vetting Status: high
And a usage of this [sc. occurs] in the [volumes] of Athenaeus.[1] There too [sc. occurs] a verb νωγαλεύειν ["to eat sweetmeats"], out of which [comes] the [neuter noun] νωγάλευμα ["sweetmeat"]. It seems that such things, including also the νώγαλα , indicate a particular preparation useful for feasting.
Greek Original:
Νωγαλέον. καὶ χρῆσις αὐτοῦ ἐν τοῖς τοῦ Ἀθηναίου. παρ' ᾧ καὶ νωγαλεύειν ῥῆμα, ἐξ οὗ τὸ νωγάλευμα. δοκεῖ δὲ τὰ τοιαῦτα, ἐν οἷς καὶ τὰ νώγαλα, σκεύασμά τι δηλοῦν χρηστὸν εἰς ἑστίασιν.
The headword is masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of the rare adjective νωγαλέος . Evidently quoted from somewhere, it is unglossed here but glossed in the corresponding entry in ps.-Zonaras as λαμπρόν ("bright/shining").
[1] Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 2.47D (2.28 Kaibel), where more precisely, as is now indicated, words related to the headword are noted (and quotations from comedy given).
