Headword: Ἐκομπάσθη
Adler number: epsilon,528
Translated headword: was renowned (?)
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] has been deceived, was (?)disposed towards pretension.
Greek Original:
Ἐκομπάσθη: ἠπάτηται, εἰς ὄγκον διετέθη.
Same entry in other lexica. As transmitted, the headword is the aorist indicative passive, third person singular, of κομπάζω ; literally 'was made a boast of'. Its only extant occurrence outside lexicography is in Euripides, Heracles 64 (web address 1), but there it has none of the negative connotations of the lexicographers' glossing. The explanation of this mismatch lies in Hesychius epsilon1555, where ἐκοπίσθη (sic) is glossed with ἠπατήθη ('was deceived') and εἰς ὅρκον διεψεύσθη ('was tricked into an oath').
This verb, otherwise unattested, is κοπίζω (A) 'lie' in LSJ.
