Vetting Status: high
[Used] with an accusative.
Greek Original:
*dra/somai: ai)tiatikh=|.
A problematic entry, almost certainly faulty. Adler prints '[used] with an accusative' from ms A but notes that two other mss (IM) have '[used] with a genitive' (cf. Syntacticum Gudianum p.590).
As to the headword itself, such a first person singular, middle/passive, is not otherwise attested. Forms of didra/skw 'run away' (and its compounds) would not be transitive. It could be from the future passive of dra/w in the sense of 'I am achieved or done', but this is neither transitive nor a plausible concept. If it is a real word, it would probably be an otherwise unknown middle of dra/w in one of its transitive uses (cf. delta 1511), probably 'I will sacrifice for myself' (LSJ II).
