Headword: *kaqi/ei
Adler number: kappa,100

Vetting Status: high
Meaning bring down, or put down to the cup. Meaning release them.
Greek Original:
*kaqi/ei: a)nti\ tou= kata/fere, h)\ e)pi/qes tw=| trubli/w|. a)nti\ tou= xa/la au)ta/.
From the scholia to Aristophanes, Birds 387 (web address 1), where the headword -- the present imperative of kaqi/hmi (cf. kappa 99, kappa 101, kappa 102) -- occurs. Read however "the two cups", i.e. tw\ trubli/w in the accusative dual, not the Suda's dative singular.
