Headword: Ἕλοιτο
Adler number: epsilon,918
Translated headword: might choose
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] might wish.
Greek Original:
Ἕλοιτο: θέλοιτο.
Notes:
The headword is aorist middle optative of αἱρέω , third person singular. Same glossing in other lexica; evidently quoted from somewhere. (The gloss seems to have been attracted into the middle voice, which is not normal for θέλω /ἐθέλω ; Theodoridis on Photius s.v. obelizes it and indicates a preference for θέλοι in Hesychius s.v. Latte on Hesychius regards the headword itself as quoted from Euripides, Alcestis 464.)
The same verb occurs at epsilon 844, epsilon 893, epsilon 896, epsilon 897.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; tragedy
