Headword: *)aghlatei=n
Adler number: alpha,214
Translated headword: to drive out, to drive out a curse
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to pursue, to drive into exile,[1] to set upon.
Herodotus [sc. uses it in the sense of] to do violence.[2]
Greek Original:
*)aghlatei=n: diw/kein, fugadeu/ein, e)pita/ttein. *(hro/dotos, u(bri/zein.
[1] The first two of these glossing infinitives are paralleled in Photius, Lexicon alpha162 Theodoridis, where the participle a)ghlatw=n (said to be extracted from the tragic poet Nicomachus) is glossed with diw/kwn and fugadeu/wn.
[2] A very loose interpretation of the single use of this verb by Herodotus (5.72.1: see web address 1 below for Greek text), from the ancient glosses on that passage; "drive out" would be better there, as elsewhere. See further under the next entry, alpha 215.
