Headword: Ἀγηοχώς
Adler number: alpha,224
Translated headword: having brought
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he] having borne.[1]
[sc. This verb is] ἄγω , [future] ἄξω , the perfect ἦχα and the Attic ἄγηχα ; and since the Attic perfect is accustomed to have the same consonant in the second and third syllable, it duplicates the 'go' syllable and it becomes ἀγήγοχα , then again with loss of the 'g' [we have] ἀγήοχα , and the participle ἀγηοχώς .[2]
Greek Original:
Ἀγηοχώς: ἐνέγκας. Ἄγω, ἄξω, ὁ παρακείμενος ἦχα καὶ ὁ Ἀττικὸς ἄγηχα: καὶ ἐπειδὴ ὁ Ἀττικὸς παρακείμενος θέλει ἔχειν ἐν τῇ δευτέρᾳ καὶ τρίτῃ συλλαβῇ τὸ αὐτὸ σύμφωνον, πλεονάζει ἡ γο συλλαβὴ καὶ γίνεται ἀγήγοχα, εἶτα πάλιν ἀποβολῇ τοῦ γ ἀγήοχα, ἡ μετοχὴ ὁ ἀγηοχώς.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius alpha175 Theodoridis, where the headword, a perfect participle, is taken to be quoted from 3 Maccabees 5.45 LXX (ἀγειοχώς there).
[2] Etymologicum Magnum 9.28, cf. Herodian Παρεκβολαὶ τοῦ μεγάλου ῥήματος 13.14 (also Choeroboscus and other lexica). Most of these perfect forms are attested, but apparently not (except in grammarians) ἄγηχα . See LSJ s.v. (web address 1) and Supplement; Smyth §446 on "Attic reduplication" at web address 2.
