adjective grd. of admi, ad, Sk. ādya] edible, eatable AN.iii.45 (bhojanāni).
in -mukha is uncertain reading at AN.iii.164 sq. (vv.ll. ādeyya˚ & ādheyya), meaning perhaps “graspmouth”, i.e. gossip; thus equal to ger. of ādiyati1. Perhaps to be taken to ādiyati2. The same phrase occurs at Pp.65 (T. ādheyya˚, C. has variant reading ādheyya˚) where Pp-a.248 explains “ādito dheyyamukho, paṭhama-vacanasmiṃ yeva ṭhapita-mukho ti attho” (sticking to one’s word?) See ādheyya.
= ādika, instr. ādiyena in the beginning Ja.vi.567 (= ādikena C.).
ger. of ādiyati.
