μόλῐς,

Adv., post- Hom. synonym of μόγις, prevailing in Trag., Com., and Att. prose, though in Pl. and later prose μόγις was preferred (in A. the Laur. Ms. gives each form twice, the same Ms. of S. μόλις always); μ. μέν, ἀλλ' ὅμως ἠνεσχόμην Ar. Nu. 1363, cf. S. Ant. 290, 1105, El. 575, Ph. 329; ζῶντι καὶ μάλα μ. nay, only just alive, Pl. Tht. 142b (cod. W μόγις) ; μ. καὶ ἠρέμα πάσχειν scarcely at all.., Arist. Metaph. 1019a31 (cod. Ab μόγις) ; ἢ ὅλως οὐκ ἔστιν ἢ μ. Id. Ph. 217b32; μ. πάνυ Eub. 30; πάνυ μ. Philem. 88.8: with a neg., οὐ μ. not scarcely, i.e. quite, utterly, ἀπώλεσας οὐ μ. A. Ag. 1082; θυραῖος ἔστω πόλεμος, οὐ μ. παρών Id. Eu. 864 (where Sch. explains οὐ μ. by οὐ μακράν, but the sense is dub.); θέλουσαν οὐ μ. καλεῖς E. Hel. 334 (lyr.).
