Translated headword: let us be pressed
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] let us hurry/make haste.
Greek Original:
*)epeixqw=men: speu/swmen.
The headword is aorist passive subjunctive of e)pei/gw, first person plural. It must be quoted from somewhere, probably from an ecclesiastical writer such as Basil or John Chrysostom, since they proffer all the extant non-lexicographical attestations of the form. The headword appears with a slightly different gloss, spouda/swmen, in Hesychius epsilon4366 (cf. Ambrosian Lexicon 1644 and 1767).
See also epsilon 2114, epsilon 2115.
