[Meaning] they implanted; they were sown very much, with the result that they seemed to grow together.

Note:
Same entry in other lexica, including Photius (epsilon2477), where Theodoridis obelizes the transmitted headword ἔφυντο , i.e. notionally the (intransitive) second aorist indicative, third person plural, of the verb φύω (phi 848), not otherwise attested. He regards the authentic headword as ἔφυν: τό , and notes the opinion of S.A. Naber that ἔφυν is quoted from Homer, Odyssey 5.481.
