Headword: Eplên
Adler number: epsilon,2788
Translated headword: I was nearing, they were nearing
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] I was/they were approaching. There is a verb plw= [meaning] I approach, [from which comes] a derivative plh=mi, [and] the second aorist e)/plhn.
Greek Original:
Eplên: eplêsiazon. esti de rhêma plô, to plêsiazô, paragôgon plêmi, ho deuteros aoristos eplên.
As the entry stands, both headword and gloss are ambiguous as between first person singular and third person plural; however, Hesychius epsilon5462 gives the same gloss for third person e)/plhnto, which Latte there claims to be quoted from Homer, Iliad 4.449.
Cf. epsilon 1031 on Philoxenos’ theory of monosyllabic verbs in Greek.
