Headword: *pri/ou
Adler number: pi,2296
Translated headword: buy!
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] liberate!
Greek Original:
*pri/ou: e)leuqe/rwson.
Second-person singular imperative(s). Same entry in the Synagoge, Photius (pi1166 Theodoridis), and the Lexica Segueriana -- and there are no other attestations. Hesychius has (a)go/rason and) e)leuqe/rwson as glosses for the compound e)kpri/ou, quoted from Proverbs 24.11 LXX. Quite possibly, therefore, pri/ou is modified from that passage.
The expected second-person singular imperative of e)pria/mhn is pri/w, for which see pi 2297.
