Headword: Χασσάμενος
Adler number: chi,145
Translated headword: having given ground
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he] having withdrawn.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.
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.
