Miscellaneous Topical Vocabulary:

Acorns

Acorns, shown in the Milo Winter picture, are not in the Greek fables, but are in some of the Latin fables. Some of the words for acorn are as follows: ἄκῠλος , (, Theoc.5.94), the acorn, βάλᾰνος [βᾰ], , acorn, date; δρῠ́καρπον , τό, acorn; φηγός , Dor. φᾱγός Theoc.9.20, , acorn (cf Latin Fagus 'beech')

Mice:

At least three words exist for mouse: 1) μῦς μυός, ὁ 2) μυγαλῆ ἡ, or μυογαλέη, μυγαλέη and 3) the more uncommon σμίνθος , (An epithet of Apollo in the Iliad. the mouse-slayer Σμινθεύς , έως, , epith. of Apollo, Il.1.39) In these stories, we find the phrase μῦς ἀρουραῖος, which LSJ says is the field-mouse, or the hamster. μυγαλέη is also the field-mouse or shrew (a tiny little thing). The Romans differentiated poorly between mice and rats, calling rats Mus Maximus (big mouse) and referring to mice as Mus Minimus (little mouse). Greeks must have had the same issue. There is no word for 'rat' in Woodhouse's English-Greek Ditionary of the Attic Language; nor can I find a definition in LSJ.

Mouse Word World

There are a whole slew of words related to μῦς. (Note: do not confuse the word μῦς with μυῖα Αttic μύα ἡ a fly; There is also a word μύσος τό uncleaness, defilement (u is always short), adj. μυσαρός -ά -ον, verb. μυσόω 'to defile'. I could not find an etymology on these words, but one wonders if it is not from μῦς. Although either mouse or fly sounds like something around defiled things. The other μυ- root is in the verb μύω which means 'to close'). Some of the μυ- 'mouse' words are as follows:

Lemma Definition
μῦς μυός, ὁ a mouse
μυογαλέη a field-mouse
μυσπολέω to run around like a mouse
μυοθήρας -ου, ὁ a mouse catcher
μυοθηρέω to hunt mice
μυσκέλενδρον τό mouse dirt, or droppings
μύσπαλα mousetrap
μυωτός (A), ή, όν, made of mouse-skin, or embroidered with figures of mice
μυώδης , ες, mouse-like
μυωξία , , mouse-hole, also a term of reproach, Id., Suid.; cf. μυωνιά.
μυομαχία, ἡ a mouse battle

A Mouse Proverb
Theocritos tells a proverb of one who is tempted to eat and finds himself caught: μῦς πίσσας γεύεται (πίσσα = pitch).

Food and Storage
There is no lack of food in these fables. The following words of food and storage have been collected from the fables: κριθὰς (barley), σῖτον (grain), σπρια (spelt σπόριος), φοίνικας (date), μέλι (honey), ὁπώρα (fruit), ἰσχάς (diced figs), ἀλφίτων (meal from κριθὴν), ἄλευρα (meal from πύρον), κανισκίου (a basket), ὀσπρίων (pulse), σωρὸς (a heap), πίθος (a jar), σύκων (figs), στάμνοι (a jar), τὰ κρίμνα (course barley meal) and last but not least τυρὸν (any guesses what that is?) Sounds like some good eating. (Note: πόλτος , , not in the fables, same as the Latin 'puls' - is most likely where we get our word 'porridge')

Light Beer?
Is light beer called λῑτὴ κριθὴ or λῑτός οἶνος or would that be 'cheap beer'? Μιλλὴρ Λιτρός or Μυλεργάτης Λιτρός or perhaps those Doric Spartans drink Μυλτάς Λιτός. A little help here please!
