Greek display:    

Headword: *)esi/nonto
Adler number: epsilon,3135
Translated headword: they were being pillaged
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] they were being damaged.
Greek Original:
*)esi/nonto: e)bla/ptonto.
Same entry in Photius and other lexica. (Earlier, Hesychius had had a similar one for e)si/neto.) The headword is third person plural, imperfect, of si/nomai. It must be quoted from somewhere; Theodoridis on Photius s.v. suggests Herodotus 5.74.2, but there are two other possibilities in that author alone, not to mention others elsewhere.
cf. sigma 462.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; military affairs
