Headword: Αἰωροῦνται
Adler number: alphaiota,265
Translated headword: they are hung up, they depend
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] they are suspended.[1]
"Upon whom the affairs of the Carthaginians were depending."[2]
Greek Original:
Αἰωροῦνται: κρέμανται. εἰς ὃν τὰ τῶν Καρχηδονίων αἰωρεῖτο πράγματα.
Notes:
The headword is present indicative middle/passive, third person plural, of αἰωρέω , evidently extracted from somewhere (other than the quotation given here); extant possibilities are all post-classical.
For this verb, cf. alphaiota 262, alphaiota 264, eta 415, eta 416, epsilon 1898. According to Chantraine, αἰωρέω is an iterative/intensive from ἀείρω , with an expressive reduplication and a long o vocalism of the root: *fαι-fωρέω .
[1] Same glossing in other lexica.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable.
