[Meaning] the new-born infant under the lactating [sc. mother/woman].
Greek Original:
Ὑπέμβρυον: τὸ ὑπὸ τῇ θηλαζούσῃ νεογνόν.
Notes:
Likewise in other lexica; references at Photius upsilon93, where Theodoridis obelizes the transmitted headword and cites G.Dindorf's view (now orthodox) that these entries derive from the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 9.245, where the phrase ὑπ' ἔμβρυον occurs.
LSJ s.v. gives only the sense 'foetus'.
