Headword: *)ololuze/tw
Adler number: omicron,191
Translated headword: let [her] emit a lamenting cry
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] let [her] mourn/wail.[1] Properly in reference to women. Homer [writes]: "the [women] all held their hands up to Athena with a lamenting cry."[2]
Greek Original:
*)ololuze/tw: qrhnei/tw. kuri/ws e)pi\ gunaikw=n. *(/omhros: ai( d' o)lolugh=| pa=sai *)aqh/nh| xei=ras a)ne/sxon.
The headword is present imperative, third person singular, of o)lolu/zw. This same form occurs in the headword phrase of omicron 192 (q.v.), of a (feminine) pine tree, and the present entry's phrase 'Properly in reference to women' perhaps suggests that the two entries are linked.
For this verb see also omicron 193, omicron 194.
[1] Comparable glossing in ps.-Herodian and, according to Adler, the Ambrosian Lexicon.
[2] Homer, Iliad 6.301 (web address 1), using the related noun, for which see omicron 186.
