Headword: *)aghlatoi/
Adler number: alpha,216
Translated headword: curse-expelling
Vetting Status: high
[A term applicable to] thunderbolts.[1]
But a)ghlatoi= [is] a verb,[2] [meaning he/she/it] leads, thunderbolts[3] or pursues.
Greek Original:
*)aghlatoi/: oi( keraunoi/. *)aghlatoi= de\ r(h=ma, a)/gei, keraunoi\ h)\ diw/kei.
[1] The headword is masculine/feminine nominative plural of this adjective, presumably quoted from somewhere. For the sense, LSJ s.v. cite the phrase a)ghla/tw| ma/stigi (i.e. a purifying lightning-strike) in Lycophron, Alexandra 436.
[2] And differently accented, as if from a contracted verb a)ghlatou=n; but LSJ has only a)ghlatei=n.
[3] Textual corruption here: a (plural) noun amidst (singular) verbs. Perhaps it has been carelessly repeated from the first part of the entry.
