Headword: Ἠπέδιζον
Adler number: eta,421
Translated headword: they began to level
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[sc. The verb is used] because ἄπεδα ["level grounds"] are flat grounds. Kleidemos [writes]: "and they began to level the acropolis and built round [it][1] the nine-gated Pelasgikon."
Greek Original:
Ἠπέδιζον: ἄπεδα γὰρ τὰ ἰσόπεδα. Κλείδημος: καὶ ἠπέδιζον τὴν ἀκρόπολιν, περιέβαλον δὲ ἐννεάπυλον τὸ Πελασγικόν.
Notes:
From alpha 2972. The headword is imperfect of ἀπεδίζω , third person plural.
[1] Aorist here, but should be another imperfect (double lambda instead of single): see alpha 2972.
