The headword is a lexicographers' variant of zeugi/sion, for which see generally LSJ s.v. (web address 1), and esp. ?Aristotle, Athenaion Politeia 7.4: zeugi/sion...telei=n as one of the Solonian income-categories (quantified in terms of agricultural produce) in early C6 BCE Athens (iota 525, pi 972). A zeugite is variously understood as a small farmer with a yoke of oxen or else a citizen able to arm himself as a heavy infantryman (hoplite).
