Headword: *gra/yai
Adler number: gamma,444

Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to hollow, to dig out.
Greek Original:
*gra/yai: koila/nai, diaska/yai.
Same entry in other lexica. The headword (which must be quoted from somewhere) is aorist active infinitive of the verb graphein (cf. gamma 435, gamma 436, gamma 438, gamma 443); here, evidently, used in a context where the physicality of the writing process is paramount.
For the first glossing infinitive see kappa 2538.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; trade and manufacture
