Headword: Ἐξανθίζω
Adler number: epsilon,1543
Translated headword: I decorate with flower-colors
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The [verb which means] I dye; as in, "you have colored the dyed [garments] in variegated [hues]."[1] But ἐξανθῶ [means] I burst into bloom, as in "the desert blossomed."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐξανθίζω: τὸ βάπτω: ὡς τό, ποικίλας ἐξηνθίκατε τὰς βαφάς. Ἐξανθῶ δὲ τὸ ἀναβλαστάνω: ὡς τό, ἐξήνθησεν ἡ ἔρημος.
Notes:
cf. epsilon 1737, epsilon 1738
[1] Differently glossed, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. The quotation itself, in any event, is a version of Lucian, Revivescentes 6 (which has ἐξηνθήκατε ).
[2] cf. Isaiah 35.2 LXX, where the future ἐξανθήσει occurs.
