[Used] with a dative.[1] [Meaning he/she/it] makes [someone/something] hateful.

Greek Original:
Echthrainei: dotikêi. echthron poiei. kai Echthreusai, echthrous genesthai. echthreusai phasin aieton kai kantharon ek tou hekateron autôn thaterou ta ôia diaspan.
The headword is third person singular, present indicative active, of e)xqrai/nw. It must be quoted from somewhere; extant possibilities are all post-classical.
[1] Comparably in syntactical lexica.
[2] From a scholion on Aristophanes, Peace 129, where Aesop's fable on the dung-beetle is mentioned (and this aorist infinitive of e)xqreu/w -- not the headword verb -- occurs).
