Headword: Πετάλοις
Adler number: pi,1385
Translated headword: with leaves, with flowers
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[πετάλοις means the same as] φύλλοις .[1]
And in the Epigrams πέταλον [means] a felt [hat] compressed out of wool. "For you, Hermes, Kalliteles hung up his hat felted from the well-carded fleece of a lamb."[2]
Greek Original:
Πετάλοις: φύλλοις. καὶ ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι πέταλον, πίλημα ἐξ ἐρίου πιληθέν. σοὶ τὸν πιληθέντα δι' εὐξάντου τριχὸς ἀμνοῦ, Ἑρμᾶ, Καλλιτέλης ἐκρέμασεν πέταλον.
Notes:
[1] The headword is dative plural of πέταλον (cf. pi 1386, pi 1394). Same glossing in Photius and other lexica, and in a scholion on Homer, Iliad 2.312 (where it occurs).
[2] Greek Anthology 6.282.1-2 (Theodoros); again at pi 1596.
