Headword: *)obrimoergo/s
Adler number: omicron,12
Translated headword: doing mighty deeds
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] one who performs great actions.
Greek Original:
*)obrimoergo/s: o( mega/la e)/rga poiw=n.
cf. scholion on Homer, Iliad 5.403, where the headword adjective occurs (web address 1); similar glossing also in Hesychius omicron25, Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon, the Etymologicum Magnum, and (according to Adler) the Ambrosian Lexicon.
For the etymology cf. omicron 13, but (despite the glossing in both entries) note LSJ's comment that the adjective is used 'always in bad sense, doing deeds of violence or wrong, esp. against the gods'.
