Greek Original:
Ἀνειμέναι: ἐκλελυμέναι. παρειμέναι. καὶ παρὰ Σοφοκλεῖ ἀνειμένη, ἀντὶ τοῦ ἄνεσιν ἔχουσα πανταχόθεν. ἀνειμένη μὲν, ὡς ἔοικας, αὖ ἐκτρέφῃ: οὐ γὰρ πάρεστ' Αἴγισθος. καὶ Ἀνειμένον ἄλσος, τὸ τῷ θεῷ ἀφιερωμένον. καὶ τὸ ἠνεῳγμένον. καὶ τὸ ῥᾳθύμως τι ποιεῖν. ἀδύνατόν τε ἦν αὐτοῖς οὕτως ἀνειμένα πως καὶ πονουμένοις ἐπικρατήσειν. καὶ, ἀνειμένων πόλοιο παμφαῶν πτυχῶν. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀνεῳγμένων.
The headword is perfect middle/passive participle, feminine nominative plural, of ἀνίημι . It must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps the Septuagint (Isaiah 35.3).
