Headword: *)oxleu=nto
Adler number: omicron,1052
Translated headword: they were being disturbed
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] they were being moved.[1]
Greek Original:
*)oxleu=nto: e)kinou=nto.
The headword, a form unattested outside lexicography, is the imperfect indicative middle/passive, third person plural, of the contract verb o)xle/w, I disturb, irritate, bother; see generally LSJ s.v. It might be generated by a similar entry, but in the present tense, in Hesychius -- and Homer before him: see next note.
[1] The gloss is the same form as the headword, but from the verb kine/w, I move, set in motion, stir; see LSJ s.v., alpha 3 (gloss), and omicron 1055. There are cognate substantives at omicron 1053, omicron 1054, omicron 1056, omicron 1057, and omicron 1058. The lemma is identically glossed by ps.-Zonaras 1493.9 (Tittmann) and, according to Adler, Lexicon Ambrosianum 701; cf. Hesychius omicron2037, s.v. o)xleu=ntai (present indicative middle/passive, third person plural), quoted from Homer, Iliad 21.261 (web address 1). There it is passive rather than middle, and the same may be presumed to be true here too.
