Headword: *)egkone/ousa
Adler number: epsilon,107
Translated headword: hurrying
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning she] rousing, urging on.[1] "Hurrying the terribly eager [female] hounds."[2]
Greek Original:
*)egkone/ousa: diegei/rousa, e)potru/nousa. deino\n maimw/sais e)gkone/ousa kusi/n.
[1] The headword is present participle, feminine nominative singular, of the verb e)gkone/w (from the quotation which follows); see further, next note.
[2] A pentameter line from Greek Anthology 6.268.4 (Mnasalcus); again at mu 327. (The unnamed subject is Artemis.) Here the normally intransitive verb e)gkone/w is apparently construed with an object in the dative; LSJ (web address 1) notes this but queries the reading. (For other forms of this verb see epsilon 108, epsilon 109, epsilon 110, and, for a nominal derivative, epsilon 111.) It is unclear whether "terribly" applies to the dogs or to Artemis; cf. the translation at mu 327.
