Headword: *)/ekluen
Adler number: epsilon,488
Translated headword: harkened to, heard
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] listened to/obeyed, commanded/urged.[1]
Greek Original:
*)/ekluen: u(ph/kousen, e)ke/leusen.
Same or similar entry in other lexica, and cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 1.43.
The headword is third person singular, imperfect active ('with aorist sense': LSJ), of klu/w (kappa 1844). It occurs frequently in Homer and other poetry (with or without final nu), taking a genitive of person heard (occasionally dative, sometimes with preposition) and frequently accusative of thing; also genitive of thing heard, with or without preposition (e.g. "he heard the god's words (acc.) from the messenger," but "he heard the voice (gen.) of the goddess").
[2] Though these glossing verbs are also deployed in other lexica (see above), the second of them seems the opposite of what is required.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; poetry
