Notes:
[1] The headword is aorist middle of σπένδω , third person singular. (It must be quoted from somewhere; there are numerous possibilities.) The middle voice is used for pouring libations with someone, as a way of making a treaty or agreement; cf. epsilon 3192, sigma 191, sigma 920.
[2] Aorist active of the same verb, third person singular; again, evidently quoted from somewhere; cf. epsilon 3190, sigma 920.
