Headword: Ἐφόρουν
Adler number: epsilon,3954
Translated headword: they were conveying
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] they were bringing. Thucydides [writes]: "they were conveying to the place wood and stones and earth and whatever else the piling on of which was likely to complete it".[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐφόρουν: ἐκόμιζον. Θουκυδίδης: ἐφόρουν δὲ τὴν ὕλην εἰς αὐτὸ καὶ λίθους καὶ γῆν καὶ εἴ τι ἄλλο ἀνύτειν μέλλοι ἐπιβαλλόμενον.
The headword is presumably extracted from the quotation given; if so, it is third person plural rather than first person singular.
[1] Thucydides 2.75.2 (web address 1), on the Spartan investment of Plataea in 429 BCE. Thucydides uses the imperfect tense here to make the scene he was describing more vivid.
