Greek display:    

Headword: *)ole/skei
Adler number: omicron,143
Translated headword: destroys, slays
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] destroys.
Greek Original:
*)ole/skei: o)loqreu/ei.
Same entry in the Synagoge, Photius' Lexicon (omicron206 Theodoridis) and Lexica Segueriana 316.3; the headword is evidently quoted from somewhere.
This o)le/sk- stem of o)/llumi does not occur in Classical Greek; the first known instances are in ps.-Chrysostom ( In adorationem venerandae crucis PG 62.754: o)le/skontai), and the Sibylline Oracles (1.108: w)/leskon). The stem mostly occurs in grammars and lexica. However o)/leskon is recorded in the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 14.220, as an alternative reading of e(/leskon.
