Headword: Ἐδῄουν
Adler number: epsilon,229
Translated headword: they were slaying, they were laying waste
Vetting Status: high
In Thucydides [this is used] meaning they were cutting down, they were destroying.[1]
"They were laying waste all the eastern territory."[2]
Also [sc. attested is] ἐδῄωσαν ["they laid waste"], [used] likewise.[3]
Greek Original:
Ἐδῄουν: παρὰ Θουκυδίδῃ ἀντὶ τοῦ διέκοπτον, διέφθειρον. ἅπασαν κατεδῄουν τὴν ἀνατολικὴν χώραν. καὶ Ἐδῄωσαν, ὁμοίως.
[1] Thucydides 2.12.5 (web address 1). Imperfect of δῃόω , third person plural; cf. delta 482.
[2] Quotation (which illustrates the kata- compound version of the headword verb: kappa 526) unidentifiable, but apparently from late imperial historiography.
[3] Aorist of the same verb. Perhaps also from Thucydides (12 instances), though there are other possibilities.
