Headword: Ἐρώεις
Adler number: epsilon,3062
Translated headword: eroeis
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] one who withdraws.[1]
But ἐρῴης ["(?)you might draw back (from)"] [is] in the optative.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐρώεις: ὁ ὑποχωρῶν. Ἐρῴης δὲ εὐκτικῶς.
[1] The gloss implies that the headword is an (otherwise unknown) adjective related to the noun ἐρωή (epsilon 3063) and the verb ἐρωέω . Compare the scholia on Homer, Iliad 17.422, where the imperative ἐρωείτω occurs; also Hesychius s.v. ἐρωῆσαι and ἐρώει . With different accentuation (ἐρωεῖς rather than ἐρώεις ) and a different gloss, the headword could be second person singular, present indicative active, of ἐρωέω ; cf. next note.
[2] Second person singular, present optative, of ἐρωέω (cf. epsilon 3064). Perhaps quoted from its only independent attestation, in Libanius, Letters 1536.3 (where, with a genitive, it does mean 'you might draw back from'; see LSJ s.v. I.2).
