[Meaning] for a need, for a scarcity, for a deprivation.[1]

Greek Original:
Χήτει: ἐνδείᾳ, σπάνει, στερήσει. Ἀγαθίας: οἱ δὲ χήτει τῶν ἄλλων ἐπιτηδείων ἔθλιβον τοὺς βότρυας καὶ ἐνεφοροῦντο τοῦ γλεύκους: ἔνθεν αὐτοῖς ἡ γαστὴρ ἐπὶ μέγα ἐφέρετο καὶ διέρρει.
[1] Similarly in Hesychius, the scholia to Homer, Iliad 19.324, Lexicon haimodein 630.38, Etymologicum Magnum 811.42. The headword, dative singular of χῆτος , is probably extracted from Homer, Iliad 6.463; cf. already chi 294.
