Also at Apollonius the Sophist, Homeric Lexicon 151.17; Synagoge tau129 Cunningham; Photius, Lexicon tau209 Theodoridis; ps.-Zonaras 1726, and cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 4.84.
In Homer there appears no technical sense for the forms of the perfect and pluperfect indicative active of teu/xw (tau 435) in tetu, and they should be translated as above everywhere in Greek. The corresponding participle, tetugme/nos, and forms in teteu, however, seem, at least sometimes, to reflect an earlier use for certain metalworking techniques, as do derivatives in teukt- (tau 427, tau 428). See tau 375 at length.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; science and technology
