The primary and secondary headwords are homophonous in Byzantine pronunciation.
[1] Likewise in other lexica. The headword (which must be quoted from somewhere but is otherwise unattested) is aorist middle, third person plural, of au)le/w, third person plural; cf. alpha 4448, eta 644.
[2] Aorist of au)li/zomai, third person plural; cf. alpha 4441. Much commoner than hu)lh/santo (11 instances in Thucydides alone), so source indeterminable.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; history; imagery; military affairs; meter and music
