Search results for epsilon,910 in Adler number:
Greek display:    

Headword: *)elw/fhsen
Adler number: epsilon,910
Translated headword: relaxed
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] ceased.[1] [The term comes] from yoke-animals.[2] Whence also the act of bearing reasonably.[3]
Greek Original:
*)elw/fhsen: e)pau/sato. a)po\ tw=n u(pozugi/wn. o(/qen kai\ to\ eu)lo/gws fe/rein.
In its entirety the entry resembles a scholion to Sophocles, Ajax 61, where the headword occurs (web address 1). See, however, n.3 below.
[1] Up to this point the entry = Lexica Segueriana 217.9 Bachmann (and Photius, Lexicon epsilon679 Theodoridis). Adler also adduces the unedited Ambrosian Lexicon (709) as a comparandum.
[2] Apparently under the mistaken impression that the verb lwfa/w (with omega in the first syllable: lambda 744, lambda 745, and cf. lambda 746) is related to lo/fos ('back of the neck', where the yoke rides on an animal) with omicron in the first syllable (lambda 703, lambda 704). Chantraine s.v. lwfa/w. See further, next note.
[3] In place of 'reasonably' (eu)lo/gws) the scholion to Sophocles, Ajax 61 has eu)lo/fws ('patiently', lit. 'in a strong-necked fashion'), which seems more pertinent but reflects folk-etymologizing (see previous note).
