Greek display:    

Headword: Παιδικώτερον
Adler number: pi,861
Translated headword: more boyish, rather boyish
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] more/rather cheerful.
Greek Original:
Παιδικώτερον: ἱλαρώτερον.
Note:
Same equivalence in Photius (pi25 Theodoridis), Eudemus, and a scholion to [Plato], Epinomis 974A (as an addendum to defining παιδικῆς there with ἱλαρᾶς ). The headword must be quoted from somewhere -- probably not, given the favourable gloss, from Polybius 3.99.8 (the Carthaginian general Bostar acts "more childishly than suited his age"); it may nevertheless also be an adverbial usage.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; philosophy
