Headword: Χασσάμενος
Adler number: chi,145
Translated headword: having given ground
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he] having withdrawn. Homer [says]: "and having given ground [Thoas] was shaken".[1] While withdrawing they used to shake the spears which were stuck in the shield, in order that they would be scattered.
Greek Original:
Χασσάμενος: ἀναχωρήσας. Ὅμηρος: ὁ δὲ χασσάμενος πελεμίχθη. τὰ ἐμπησσόμενα τῇ ἀσπίδι δόρατα ἀναχωροῦντες διετίνασσον, ἵνα σκεδασθῇ.
Notes:
The headword (extracted from the quotation given) is aorist middle participle, masculine nominative singular, of the verb χάζω (LSJ s.v. B at web address 1); see also kappa 1455 and a series of entries in Hesychius, who glosses the verb as synonymous with χωρέω and two of its compounds, ἀναχωρέω (as in this entry) and ὑποχωρέω .
[1] Homer, Iliad 4.535(= 5.626, 13.148; see web address 2), followed by material which clumsily (for 'would be scattered' read 'would fall out') paraphrases Aristonicus' corresponding scholia.
