[Meaning it] seems. It is used so in Homer.[1] And [there is] a proverb: 'I care for such things no less than [sc. I do for] the frogs in the swamps'.[2]
Greek Original:
*me/lei: e)/oiken. ou(/tw te/qeitai par' *(omh/rw|. kai\ paroimi/a: me/lei moi tw=n toiou/twn ou)de\n h(=tton h)\ tw=n e)n toi=s te/lmasi batra/xwn.
cf. mu 482.
[1] cf. Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon (110.28). As far as e)/oiken, there are parallels in other lexica, and in scholia on Homer, Iliad 1.564 and Plato, Republic 8.566E (in both of which passages the verb is me/llei: web address 1 & web address 2). See also epsilon 969, where e)/melle is glossed with e)w/|kei (so apparently the gloss is assigned to the wrong verb here).
[2] Also under tau 277. See also Julian, Misopogon 28.28-30, and Arsenius 11.10.
