Translation:

Aedyonelasu: this Greek word Stephanus explains with the Arabic word cadite leiel, and I have no knowledge of either of them.


Commentary:

Aedyonelasu:
This is Greek αἰδοῖον ἐλάφου /aidoîon eláphou/, itacist /edíon eláfu/, which means “penis of the stag”.
αἰδοῖον /aidoîon/ “privy parts, pudenda, both of men and women” (LSJ); ἔλαφος /élaphos/ “deer, stag, hind”.
