[Genitive] πευθῆνος : a mandator.
Greek Original:
Πευθήν, Πευθῆνος: ὁ μανδάτωρ.
The headword, a masculine noun related to the verb πυνθάνομαι (pi 3134, pi 3135, pi 3141, pi 3173, pi 3174, pi 3175), has its earliest attestation in the 1st or 2nd century AD. The gloss is a transliteration of Latin mandator, "one who instigates or suborns accusers or informers" (Lewis & Short s.v.). Adler reports the same gloss in the Ambrosian Lexicon, and compares a scholion on Lucian, Phalaris 1.10 (6.8-10 Rabe), where the accusative plural of the headword occurs.
