Greek display:    

Headword: *meqe/sqai
Adler number: mu,415
Translated headword: to dismiss
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to abandon.[1]
Sophocles [writes]: "and allow men who are your friends to rule your intentions; dismiss these thoughts."[2]
Greek Original:
*meqe/sqai: katalipei=n. *sofoklh=s: kai\ do\s a)ndra/sin fi/lois gnw/mhsi fath=sai, ta/sde fronti/das meqe/sqai.
[1] Likewise in other lexica. The headword (presumably quoted from somewhere) is aorist middle infinitive of meqi/hmi; cf. mu 417, mu 418, mu 419, mu 424, mu 425, mu 426, mu 427.
[2] A faulty version of Sophocles, Ajax 483-4 (web address 1) -- read krath=sai instead of fath=sai and, importantly in the present context, meqei/s (aorist participle) instead of the infinitive meqe/sqai.
