Headword: Ῥωστήριον
Adler number: rho,268
Translated headword: strengthener
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning a] stimulator.
Greek Original:
Ῥωστήριον: παρορμητήριον.
Notes:
The headword and gloss, both of them unattested outside lexicography, are neuter nouns in the nominative/vocative/accusative singular.
Same entry in Photius' Lexicon (rho214 Theodoridis). Hesychius has a longer and more elaborate gloss for the present headword (rho592) and, apparently, applies the present gloss to a related term, ῥωπητήριον (rho578).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology
