[Meaning he/she/it] was in need. In another [sense], [meaning he/she/it] was satisfied, was gladdened, got wet.

Same or similar entry in other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon. The headword is imperfect middle, third person singular. As from δεύομαι , a dialectal variant of δέομαι , it occurs seven times in Homer (always in the formulaic phrase 'did not lack an equal feasting-share'); cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 1.468. However, 'got wet' glosses the imperfect middle of a different verb, δεύω (drench, soak); cf. delta 282.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic
