Headword: *)oreopolw=
Adler number: omicron,532
Translated headword: I wander in the mountains
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] I am involved with mountains.[1] But o)rewpolw= [means] I am involved with donkeys.[2]
[sc. The latter comes] from o)reu/s, [genitive] o)re/ws ["mule"], which means half-donkey.[3]
Greek Original:
*)oreopolw=: peri\ ta\ o)/rh a)nastre/fomai. *)orewpolw= de\ to\ peri\ tou\s o)/nous a)nastre/fomai. e)k tou= o)reu/s, o)re/ws, o(\ shmai/nei h(mi/onon.
[1] cf. o)reipolw= at omicron 551.
[2] This entry aims to distinguish a mountain-word from a mule-word. Chantraine is unsure why compounds of o)reu/s have an omega for the connecting vowel (cf. omicron 531). Adler reports a similar entry in the Ambrosian Lexicon.
[3] See omicron 552.
