Φιλοκαλοῦμέν τε γὰρ μετ' εὐτελείας καὶ φιλοσοφοῦμεν ἄνευ μαλακίας -> Our love of what is beautiful does not lead to extravagance; our love of the things of the mind does not makes us soft.
Τhucydides, 2.40.1

Greek Monolingual

κοινή ονομασία τών 100 περίπου ειδών του γένους παπάβερ, γνωστού και με την αρχαία και λόγια ονομασία Μήκων.
[ΕΤΥΜΟΛ. < ιταλ. papaverone (ιδιωμ. τ. paparina) ή < ρουμαν. paparoană (< λατ. papaver, -eris «παπαρούνα»)].
