Headword: *zw/eskon
Adler number: zeta,124
Translated headword: I used to live, I was living
Vetting Status: high
Meaning I was wealthy. "I myself was still living [sc. well]."[1]
Greek Original:
*zw/eskon: a)nti\ tou= e)plou/toun. e)gw\n e)/ti zw/eskon.
The headword is iterative of zw=, imperfect, first person singular. It is presumably extracted from the short quotation appended. (There are two instances of zw/eskon in Hesiod, Works and Days 90 & 133, though both are third person plurals -- and neither lend themselves to the present glossing.)
[1] Quotation unidentifiable.
