Headword: Ἀγηλατεῖν
Adler number: alpha,214
Translated headword: to drive out, to drive out a curse
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to pursue, to drive into exile,[1] to set upon.
Herodotus [sc. uses it in the sense of] to do violence.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἀγηλατεῖν: διώκειν, φυγαδεύειν, ἐπιτάττειν. Ἡρόδοτος, ὑβρίζειν.
[1] The first two of these glossing infinitives are paralleled in Photius, Lexicon alpha162 Theodoridis, where the participle ἀγηλατῶν (said to be extracted from the tragic poet Nicomachus) is glossed with διώκων and φυγαδεύων .
[2] A very loose interpretation of the single use of this verb by Herodotus (5.72.1: see web address 1 below for Greek text), from the ancient glosses on that passage; "drive out" would be better there, as elsewhere. See further under the next entry, alpha 215.
