Same entry, in reverse, at eta 188.
[1] Sophocles, Oedipus at Colonus 1158-9 (abridged), where the text actually reads ἔκυρον , the imperfect of κύρω , an older (epic) form of κυρέω ; cf. web address 1. For the verb, a close synonym of τυγχάνω , as the scholia ad loc. point out, see kappa 2747, sigma 1485, cf. kappa 2756, kappa 2772.
[2] For the verb ἀκυρόω 'I invalidate, make of dubious authority' (web address 2), of which the entry also uses the imperfect tense, see also (as indicated) eta 188. (It is not otherwise attested.) For the sense of ἀβέβαιος as unsafe, not giving a proper legal foundation, see alpha 28, and cf. upsilon 423.
