Headword: *(olkh/n
Adler number: omicron,174
Translated headword: dragging, hauling
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] bringing-in, turning.[1]
Greek Original:
*(olkh/n: e)pagwgh/n, troph/n.
The headword is a feminine noun in the accusative singular; see generally LSJ s.v. o(lkh/ (pulling, dragging, tugging towards). [Another sense is a drawing-down (of a scale, i.e. a weight); so already omicron 173.] It must be quoted from somewhere; Theodoridis [see next note] mentions Naber's view that the source is Plato, Philebus 57D (figurative there).
[1] The glosses are the same form as the headword; see LSJ s.vv. e)pagwgh/ and troph/. The headword is identically glossed in the Synagoge, Photius' Lexicon (omicron226 Theodoridis), and Lexica Segueriana 316.19.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; imagery; philosophy; science and technology
