Vetting Status: high

[Meaning] bright.[1]

Notes:
[1] cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 3.357, where the feminine genitive singular of the headword occurs (of a shield). The present headword itself -- masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular -- is glossed likewise in other lexica and must be quoted from somewhere else: Theodoridis on Photius phi6 suggests Iliad 3.247 (citing the scholia there).
[2] (cf. tau 1081.) Quotation unidentifiable. (Attributed to Aelian by Valckenaer.)
Keywords: botany; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; food; military affairs
