Headword: *leai/nw
Adler number: lambda,227
Translated headword: I smooth
Vetting Status: high
['I smooth'] and 'having smoothed' [Attic] and 'having smoothed' [epic];[1] [this verb is used] with an accusative.
Greek Original:
*leai/nw kai\ *lea/nas kai\ *leh/|nas: ai)tiatikh=|.
Mss AFV, Adler reports, contain only the two participles, not the primary headword leai/nw or "with an accusative." See also lambda 211, lambda 355.
The verb is also listed as taking the accusative in the Laurentian Syntactic Lexicon (see bibliography).
[1] The iota subscript in leh/|nas is a Byzantine hypercorrection (preserving the iota of leai/nw); properly the epic/Ionic form is leh/nas, which occurs in a figurative sense in Herodotus 8.142.4 (of King Alexander I of Macedon, in the view of the Spartans, toning down Mardonius' speech); see also Nicander, Alexipharmaca 201, 624.
