[Used] with an accusative. [Meaning] might I cross over.[1]

Notes:
[1] Likewise (minus the grammatical point) in other lexica; references in Photius alpha1558 Theodoridis. The headword, an aorist optative, is extracted from Homer, Odyssey 12.428 (on Charybdis: chi 144); cf. the scholia there. The line is quoted in Plato's Seventh Letter (345E).
[2] At the toe-end of Italy (rho 122).
[3] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler tentatively suggests Diodorus Siculus.)
