Headword: *)enau/ein
Adler number: epsilon,1137

[Meaning] to be a suppliant in the temples.[1] "If Euripides after drawing inspiration for the whole speech from there, then however assigns it to Phoenix [Author, Myth] [...]".[2]
Greek Original:
*)enau/ein: to\ i(keteu/ein pro\s toi=s naoi=s. ei) de\ e)nteu=qen *eu)ripi/dhs e)nausa/menos to\n lo/gon a(/panta, ei)=ta me/ntoi *foi/niki periti/qhsin.
[1] This meaning of the verb e)nau/w, labelled sense C in LSJ s.v., is unattested outside Photius (epsilon824 Theodoridis), the Suda, and ps.-Zonaras. They or their source seem to have confused e)nau/w "kindle" (sense A in LSJ) with e)nnau/w (cf. naw/s; Hesychius epsilon2715 and epsilon2601 for the synonym e)nnai/zw) or e)nnaeu/w. See the note in Theodoridis (who obelizes the transmitted headword).
[2] Aelian fr. 244b D.-F. (246 Hercher). (White [below] on Hieronymus 42B makes a connection with alpha 1842, identifying both passages as deriving from a work by Hieronymus of Rhodes, and referring to Euripides' lost play Phoenix [Author, Myth].) The exact context is indeterminable, but the meaning of the aorist participle e)nausa/menos required seems to be the one translated here; see LSJ s.v.
