Headword: Ἐπῃωρεῖτο
Adler number: epsilon,2192
Translated headword: was being lifted up
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] was hung.
Greek Original:
Ἐπῃωρεῖτο: ἐκρέματο.
Notes:
The headword is third person singular, imperfect middle-passive, of αἰωρέω . It must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps from Plutarch, whose four instances of it are the only ones attested outside the present entry.
cf. alphaiota 264, alphaiota 265, epsilon 1896, epsilon 1898; and note also Hesychius epsilon4608, glossing the adjective ἐπήορα with κρεμάμενα .
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography
