Headword: Κατισχνοῖ
Adler number: kappa,1079
Translated headword: causes to waste away
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] makes [something/someone] thin.
Greek Original:
Κατισχνοῖ: καταλεπτύνει.
Notes:
The headword is third person singular, present indicative active, of κατισχνόω . It is perhaps quoted from its only other attested occurrence, in John Chrysostom (PG 6.560): καὶ λεπτύνει καὶ κατισχνοῖ .
Other lexica have the present infinitive, correspondingly glossed; see the references at Photius kappa478, where Theodorodis regards it as quoted from Cyril of Alexandria.
The middle κατισχνόομαι is more common (LSJ s.v.); cf. kappa 1078.
Keywords: Christianity; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; medicine; religion
