Greek Original:
*tautoe/peia. kai\ *tautoepei=n, tautologei=n.
The headword tautoe/peia is a feminine noun, distinguishable in Greek (though hardly in English) from tautologi/a; for the latter, see under alpha 628 and pi 84.
The accusative singular of the headword is attested twice in Cyril of Alexandria; otherwise it does not appear outside lexicography. Hesychius has the nominative plural, glossed with tautologi/ai.
[1] This infinitive is likewise attested only in Cyril of Alexandria and Hesychius (who glosses it with to\ au)to\ le/gein).
