What does this word mean?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am currently translating excerpt from work of Nikolaos Politis into my native language and I stumbled across this word: μελεβετζίν. I have no idea what could it mean, the closest call seems to be μαλεβίζι (as the type of wine), but I am not sure if it fits to the context (if someone is curious, I am talking about story #970 from the chapter βρικόλακες). Can somebody help?

I have no idea. It's not a Greek word.

I think I found the excerpt of the story you're taling about here: https://books.google.ca/books?id=MtMQBwAAQBAJ&pg=PA603&lpg=PA603&dq=μελεβετζίν&source=bl&ots=mCwWzBTnuu&sig=ACfU3U1NAnduortofKvgfHPaPaoZw3hxWg&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiFlZS9ybPlAhV9GDQIHYLWCU0Q6AEwAHoECAAQAQ#v=onepage&q=μελεβετζίν&f=false

I read the whole paragraph but I still can't tell what this word means. It's definitely not a Greek word, maybe it's Turkish or middle eastern in origin.
