{ieiunus} ms. p adds an attempt at writing ἄσιτος /ásitos/ in Greek script


Asitia {noun} is Greek for "fasting", asitos {adjective} means the same.


Greek ἀσιτία /asitía/ means "want of food; abstinence from food; want of appetite" (LSJ); ἄσιτος /ásitos/ is the pertinent adjective. They are both forms consisting of ἀ- /a-/ {"un-, non"} + a derivative of e.g σιτέω /sitéō/ "take food, eat".
