Headword: *)agh/rw
Adler number: alpha,227
Translated headword: ageless [things]
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] ones which do not grow old. And with [final] nu [the result is] a)gh/rwn. But some say the [word] without nu is feminine, and some say the [word] with the nu identifies the accusative case, and the one without this [identifies] both the genitive and dative.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] a)gh/rws, [meaning] imperishable in Attic [masculine]; and in the neuter a)gh/rwn.[2]
Greek Original:

cf. alpha 225. The main part of the present entry is the same or similar in other lexica; references at Photius alpha168 and alpha169 Theodoridis.
[1] The epic a)gh/raos is contracted to a)gh/rws in Attic (LSJ entry at web address 1). The form with nu is indeed the accusative singular for all genders, as well as the neuter nominative singular; a)gh/rw can be neuter nominative/accusative plural or masculine nominative dual, as in Homer, Iliad 12.323 (web address 2). At Iliad 2.447 a)gh/rw is given by some manuscripts as feminine accusative singular, but Aristophanes of Byzantium and Aristarchus read a)gh/rwn.
[2] Same material, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (127 & 310).
