Headword: *)/eknizen
Adler number: epsilon,514
Translated headword: was chafing, was scratching
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] was biting. [A usage stemming] from grass. Herodotus [uses the word].
Greek Original:
*)/eknizen: e)/daknen. a)po\ th=s po/as. *(hro/dotos.
Third person singular, imperfect indicative active, of kni/zw (here in sense II.2 of LSJ s.v., see web address 1). It appears in this form twice in Herodotus: at 6.62.1 (glosses to which lie behind the present entry) and at 7.12.1, in both instances in this figurative sense. In the present instance the subject is erotic arousal 'chafing' King Ariston of Sparta, so the 'biting' gloss is equally metaphorical.
For the headword verb, see also epsilon 515, kappa 1874 and kappa 1875.
