Headword: Ἐθώπευον
Adler number: epsilon,330
Translated headword: I was flattering, they were flattering
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning I/they] were fawning over.
Greek Original:
Ἐθώπευον: ἐκολάκευον.
Notes:
Same entry in ps.-Zonaras and, according to Adler, the Ambrosian Lexicon. (Hesychius epsilon709 has a parallel one with third-person singular aorists.) The headword, which must be quoted from somewhere, is imperfect indicative active -- either first person singular or third person plural -- of the verb θωπεύω (theta 433), 'flatter, fawn over, deceive by flattery' (LSJ entry at web address 1).
cf. under eta 159.
