Surprisingly, the commentary (/Mādhuryarañjanīvyākhyā/) confirms this fault:
/narau nagaṇaragaṇau ro ragaṇaḥ / GAU GURUDVAYAM //
I guess that the correct entry in the three volume edition of Apte's
dictionary could be taken from Velankar's /Jayadāman /(Bombay 1949, p.
"/nararalaga Rājahaṃsī /(6,5) Mm. 9.11, /Vibhūṣaṇā /Vjs [=
/Vṛttajātisamuccaya /of Vīrahaṅka] 4.94"
By the way, the definition /kanakamañjarī naś ca rau lagau/ is itself
written in this meter (/na ra ra la ga/; caesura after the 6th
syllable) - a practice that was probably first introduced by Jayadeva
(leaving aside the hardly datable /Nāṭyaśāstra/).
