Headword: *)etru/xwsen
Adler number: epsilon,3336
Translated headword: emaciated
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] wore [someone/something] out.[1]
"The earth, gripped with torments, was wearing them out most painfully".[2]
Greek Original:
*)etru/xwsen: e)ce/triyen. h( de\ gh= a)goni/ais kateilhmme/nh e)/truxen au)tou\s a)lgeino/tata.
[1] Likewise in Photius. The headword is aorist, third person singular, of truxo/w. It must be quoted from somewhere -- but not, apparently, the quotation given here, which has the imperfect of a related verb, tru/xw (tau 1116). [In ps.-Zonaras the quotation does have e)tru/xwsen, with e)/truxen as an added alternative, but editors of Aelian print the Suda's e)/truxen.] Outside lexicography, the only extant instances of e)tru/xwse occur in the poems of Gregory of Nazianzus.
[2] Aelian fr. 251 Hercher (249 Domingo-Forasté).
