Licos grece lupus.


Apparatus:

Whole entry om. B efjp


Translation:

Licos is Greek for Latin lupus {"wolf"}.


Commentary:

This entry only occurs in witnesses A and C. This is probably a later addition, which why it is absent from witnesses B efjp. This spelling is simply a more Latinised transcription of likos, which represents Greek λύκος /lýkos/, here in its medieval itacist pronunciation /líkos/.
