Headword: *)/edrasen
Adler number: epsilon,266
Translated headword: acted; settled
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] did, seated.
Greek Original:
*)/edrasen: e)poi/hsen, e)ka/qisen.
Given the ambiguous glossing -- on which see further below -- Adler printed this headword (aorist, third person singular) as the non-committal edrasen, as did Theodoridis for the Photius entry which it follows (epsilon135). The SOL headword overrides this prudent caution by being e)/drasen, i.e. from dra/w. (For this with corresponding glosses compare delta 1488, delta 1507.)
The problem is that only the first of the two glosses makes a good fit with e)/drasen. The second might simply be a mistake; however, a more complicated explanation suggests itself when we take into account Hesychius epsilon511, which glosses e(/drasen (sic) with e)ka/qisen (and e)ko/smhsen). By Photius' time, it would therefore seem, two very similar entries have become conflated, the second of them from the verb e(dra/zw (for which cf. under alpha 4384).
