Headword: Ἔχρησεν
Adler number: epsilon,4043
Translated headword: gave an oracular response, lent
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] prophesied,[1] or borrowed.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἔχρησεν: ἐμαντεύσατο, ἢ ἐδανείσατο.
Notes:
The headword must be quoted from somewhere. The active χράω (of which this is the third person singular, aorist indicative) is commonly used of gods and their oracles: see LSJ s.v. χράω (B) A.I.), and cf. chi 492, chi 496, chi 547.
[1] Similarly in Hesychius and elsewhere.
[2] cf. delta 60 (but the glossing verb ought to be active voice -- also meaning 'lent' -- rather than middle).
Keywords: daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; economics; religion
