= (minus the grammatical gloss) Synagoge tau8 and Photius, Lexicon tau18 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius tau51 (with only the first of the two substantive glosses). See Theodoridis for other parallels.
Theodoridis notes the standard assumption that the headword is extracted from Basil of Caesarea's Homily on Psalm 61.4 (PG 29.480a) but also mentions its frequent occurrence in John Chrysostom. (See also, in fact, Athanasius, Cyril of Alexandria, et al.)
For this verb cf. under epsilon 1818.
