[Meaning she/she/it] seizes, destroys.[1] "But when a crooked-clawed hide-eagle snatches [a serpent...]."[2]
Greek Original:
*ma/ryh|: sulla/bh|, diaxrh/shtai. a)ll' o(po/tan ma/ryh| bursai/etos a)gkuloxei/lhs.
[1] The headword is aorist subjunctive -- though (as indicated) not translatable as such into idiomatic English -- of ma/rptw, third person singular. It is presumably extracted from the quotation given, though it also occurs in Homer, Iliad 21.564; and for the first of the glosses cf. Hesychius on ma/ryai in Iliad 22.201.
[2] Aristophanes, Knights 197 (web address 1), a mock-oracle about Kleon (kappa 1731, and cf. beta 593).
