One might have supposed that this headword was the imperfect (third person singular) of a)i/w "I hear", and as such quoted from Homer, Iliad 11.463; but the gloss does not fit that. Instead, this is LSJ's a)i/w(B); and for the glossing cf. Hesychius alpha2041: a)/ion h(=tor [Homer, Iliad 15.252: web address 1 below], e)ce/pneon th\n yuxh/n.
