Headword: *spaqw=si
Adler number: sigma,900
Translated headword: they thread-pack
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] they live wantonly, they dissipate.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the related noun] spa/qhsis ['thread-packing'], [meaning] wanton living.[2]
Greek Original:
*spaqw=si: kataspatalw=si, skorpi/zousi. kai\ *spa/qhsis, spata/lh.
The primary headword, present indicative or subjunctive active third person plural of the verb spaqa/w (cf. sigma 898, and more generally sigma 899), is evidently extracted from a literary source; perhaps Lucian, Gallus 29 (cf. scholia ad loc. for similar glossing).
[1] For the first gloss Adler cites Lexicon Ambrosianum 701 and ps.-Zonaras 1655. For the second, cf. Hesychius sigma1392; Synagoge sigma166; Photius, Lexicon sigma433 Theodoridis.
[2] This meaning is attested only here; Aristotle and his commentator Simplicius have a more literal one; see LSJ s.v.
