Headword: *)/eplhn
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:
*)/eplhn: e)plhsi/azon. e)/sti de\ r(h=ma plw=, to\ plhsia/zw, para/gwgon plh=mi, o( deu/teros a)o/ristos e)/plhn.
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.
