Headword: *)/awrto
Adler number: alpha,2858
Translated headword: had been hung
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] was suspended.[1]
o)/rw, o)/rsw, w)=rka, w)=rmai, w)=rso, w)=rto and a)/wrto.[2]
Greek Original:
*)/awrto: e)kre/mato. o)/rw, o)/rsw, w)=rka, w)=rmai, w)=rso, w)=rto kai\ a)/wrto.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. and cf. also the scholia to Homer, Iliad 3.272, where the headword occurs.
[2] (cf. Etymologicum Magnum 117.4.) The lexicographer seems to derive a)/wrto from o)/rnumi, "stir up, excite", as the words listed are forms of that verb: a conjectural present o)/rw, the future active o)/rsw, the perfect active w)=rka, the perfect middle w)=rmai, the second person singular aorist middle w)=rso, and the third person singular aorist middle w)=rto. However, a)/wrto is better understood as an archaic form of another verb, a)ei/rw (alpha 638): an epic third person singular pluperfect middle, which means "hung" (e.g. Homer, Iliad 3.272: see preceding note). The same root is seen in the noun a)=or (alpha 2844).
