=Synagoge delta353; Photius, Lexicon delta730. The headword is third person singular, aorist indicative active, of doupe/w, denominative verb from dou=pos (delta 1426). It is probably quoted, as Theodoridis on Photius asserts, from Homer, Iliad 4.504; in any event it is used mainly in epic and other poetry.
See also epsilon 2285, epsilon 2310.
