In the tenth-century Byzantine lexicon known as the Suda there exists one particularly lengthy entry on the Biblical figure Adam. In this entry, Adam appears not as a figure to be scorned, but as a hero. Through analyzing the rhetoric of this entry as well as the perception of Adam in Byzantine culture, it is possible to make sense of this entry and discover the what the role of Adam was in Byzantine culture.
