Headword: Εἵατο
Adler number: epsiloniota,13
Translated headword: they sat
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] sat down.[1] The imperfect [is] ἥμην ["I sat"]; [third person plural] ἧντο , Ionic ἕατο , poetic εἵατο .
Otherwise: ἑῶ , ἕημι , ἕεμαι , ἧμαι [and the compound] κάθημαι ["I sit down"], ἧνται , ἕαται in Ionic and with lengthening εἵαται , like [singular] μέμνηται , [plural] μεμνέαται .[2]
Greek Original:
Εἵατο: ἐκάθητο. ἥμην ὁ παρατατικός: ἧντο, Ἰωνικῶς ἕατο, ποιητικῶς εἵατο. ἄλλως. ἑῶ, ἕημι, ἕεμαι, ἧμαι, κάθημαι, ἧνται, ἔαται Ἰωνικῶς καὶ πλεονασμῷ εἵαται, ὡς μέμνηται, μεμνέαται.
[1] Adler does print third person singular ἐκάθητο (and repeats it in her apparatus), without comment; but surely the gloss should be ἐκάθηντο , as in the scholia to Homer, Iliad 7.61, where the headword occurs (as ἥατο ) and from where it is presumably quoted. The alpha in these plural forms comes from a vocalic n.
[2] From epsilon 14.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic
