Headword: *curei= ga\r e)n xrw=|, w(/ste mh\ xai/rein
Adler number: xi,156
Translated headword: for it shaves in the skin so that there is no joy
Vetting Status: high
Meaning it penetrates deeply, so that there is no joy. The "someone" is redundant.
Greek Original:
*curei= ga\r e)n xrw=|, w(/ste mh\ xai/rein: a)nti\ tou= me/xri ba/qous dii+knei=tai, w(/ste mh\ xai/rein. to\ de\ tina/ pare/lkei.
The headword phrase is an approximation of Sophocles, Ajax 786 (with comment from the scholia there). See the text at web address 1: the fifth word, as transmitted, is not w(/ste but tou=to "this", and the line ends with tina/ -- hence the additional comment in the gloss.
For "shaving in the skin," see epsilon 1507.
