Headword: Νωγαλέον
Adler number: nu,528
Translated headword: attractive, dainty
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
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.
Notes:
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).
