Headword: Ἐπρήσθη
Adler number: epsilon,2860
Translated headword: was burned
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] was heated with fire.[1] "He was convicted for committing great wrongdoing and was burned up alive."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐπρήσθη: ἐκαύθη πυρί. ἑάλω μέγα κακουργῶν καὶ ζῶν ἐνεπρήσθη.
[1] The headword is third person singular, aorist passive, of πίμπρημι . It must be extracted from somewhere: not the quotation given here, which has the corresponding form of the compound ἐμπίμπρημι ; rather, apparently, Nicander, Theriaca 403 (cf. the scholia there).
[2] Aelian fr. 162 Domingo-Forasté (159 Hercher), quoted more fully at mu 349 (with yet another compound: καταπίμπρημι ).
