Headword: *)ewnhme/noi
Adler number: epsilon,1889
Translated headword: having purchased
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning they] buying, or having bought.[1]
Aristophanes [writes]: "for the deity does not allow the possessor to control his own body, but the one having purchased [it]."[2] meaning [the one] buying [it];[3] from w)nou=mai ["I buy"]. For the rest of the declension of the verb is used. But the plural of the noun[4] is not w)nhsa/menoi; thus the Atticists change [it] and say, [using] another word, pria/menoi.[5]
Greek Original:

[1] The headword is the perfect middle participle, masculine nominative plural, of w)ne/omai. Same or similar glossing in other lexica; evidently quoted from somewhere (perhaps Plato, Republic 563B, though there are other possibilities). As glosses, one is offered a choice between the aorist active and perfect middle participles (both again nom. masc. pl.) of a)gora/zw.
[2] Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 6-7 (web address 1), from the scholia to which the entry probably derives. The same passage is also quoted at delta 119.
[3] The aorist middle participle.
[4] That is, the nominal forms of the participle.
[5] For w)nhsa/menoi see e.g. Polybius 4.50.3. *pria/menoi [LSJ s.v. pri/amai] is standard in the Attic orators, Xenophon, et al.
