Headword: Ἐσφηκόωντο
Adler number: epsilon,3240
Translated headword: they were being cinched
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Also [sc. attested is] "to be cinched", [meaning] to be tied. Also [sc. attested is] "[he/she/it] was being cinched", [meaning] was being tied.
Greek Original:
Ἐσφηκόωντο. καὶ Ἐσφηκῶσθαι, δεδέσθαι. καὶ Ἐσφήκωτο, ἐδέδετο.
Note:
The (unglossed) primary headword is imperfect indicative middle/passive, third person plural, of σφηκόω . Glossed in the entry are the perfect middle/passive infinitive and the imperfect indicative middle/passive, third person singular. None but the last of these is attested outside lexicography (Heliodorus 3.3.2, Pamprepius fr. 3.162) in the forms given here. The headword, however, appears in an uncontracted form, and the corresponding contracted form ἐσφήκωντο occurs in numerous sources, including Homer, and is glossed similarly in scholia to Homer, Iliad 17.52, and Hesychius epsilon6439.
