Greek display:    

Headword: Abrixai
Adler number: alpha,79
Translated headword: to drop off, to nod off
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to be drowsy after eating[1] or to fall asleep.
Greek Original:
Abrixai: to apo boras nustaxai ê koimêthênai.
Notes:
Likewise in ps.-Zonaras. The headword, presumably quoted from somewhere, is an aorist active infinitive. LSJ proffers no suitable verb for it under alpha, but see the entry on bri/zw, 'to be sleepy, nod'. (Adler notes that after beta 542 ms F has the entry Bri/zw: to\ nusta/zw.)
[1] This much also occurs, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon.
Keywords: daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food
