Adler number: alpha,2772
Translated headword: opens
Vetting Status: high
[Opens] and ἀνοιγνύει ["opens up"]: [sc. used] in two ways.[1]
For ἀνοίγω [means] "I separate".
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] ἀνοιγομένοις τοῖς κτήνεσιν ["when the cattle are being opened"], meaning cleaved apart. Herodotus [sc. uses the phrase].[2]
"With the tombs being opened under a witness sun and the bones being shamefully carried out into private tombs."[3]
[Used] with a dative; and with an accusative, as in: "open your mouth with the word of god."[4]
Greek Original:
Ἀνοίγει καὶ Ἀνοιγνύει, διχῶς. Ἀνοίγω γὰρ τὸ διαχωρίζω. καὶ Ἀνοιγομένοις τοῖς κτήνεσιν, ἀντὶ τοῦ σχιζομένοις. Ἡρόδοτος. ἀνοιγνυμένων δὲ τῶν τάφων ὑφ' ἡλίῳ μάρτυρι καὶ τῶν ὀστῶν ἀτίμως ἐκκομιζομένων ἐς ταφὰς ἰδιώτιδας. δοτικῇ: καὶ μετὰ αἰτιατικῆς ὡς τό: ἄνοιγε σὸν στόμα λόγῳ θεοῦ.
[1] Same glossing in Photius and elsewhere. (What the 'two ways' are is not made clear, but ἀνοιγνύει is otherwise unattested.)
[2] Herodotus 4.58, in Ionic dialect (web address 1 below).
[3] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable (Adler suggests Aelian.)
[4] Not identified by Adler, but identifiable via the TLG as coming from the Septuagint: Proverbs 31.8.
