Greek Original:
*(rei=a: r(a|di/ws, eu)ko/lws, eu)marw=s, i)sxurw=s. *(/omhros: r(ei=' e)/gnwn a)pio/ntos. kai\ *(rei=on, eu)xere/s, eu)/kolon.
The headword is an epic adverb; a better spelling would be r(h=a. The form r(e/a also occurs, often where a monosyllabic scansion is possible, perhaps representing an Aeolic r(a= which is also the Attic and Doric form. Grammarians cite bra= (or bra=|) as Aeolic -- that is, vra=.
Also rho 110; see similar entries in Photius and Hesychius; cf. Etymologicum Gudianum s.v.
[1] cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 2.475, where the headword occurs.
[2] Homer, Iliad 13.72 (web address 1).
[3] The form r(ei=on is attested only here, in fact.
[4] cf. rho 40.
