Headword: Ῥοδοειδής
Adler number: rho,202
Translated headword: rose-like, rosy
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] gladdening/delightful.
Greek Original:
Ῥοδοειδής: ὁ χαροποιός.
Notes:
Adjective attested in a variety of late writers and sources. Considering the gloss, the entry was perhaps prompted by Theophylact Simocatta, Histories 7.11.5 (where the accusative is used in a figurative sense), or by one of the several instances in Nonnus.
(The fact that the neuter of the headword, as a substantive, is mentioned by medical writers as a remedy for nosebleeds is hardly relevant here.)
Keywords: botany; definition; ethics; historiography; imagery; medicine; poetry
