The headword verb literally means to disrobe (someone); cf. generally lambda 731, lambda 724, lambda 735. Its occurrences are confined to lexica (e.g. Hesychius lambda1510) and grammars, but for the compound e)klwpi/zw (epsilon 487) see e.g. Sophocles, Trachiniae 925, where it occurs with tmesis: e)k d' e)lw/pisen (web address 1).
