According to LSJ s.v. κωχεύω , the transmitted headword κωχεύει is an incorrect reading for ὀκωχεύει "holds" in Sophocles fr.327. ps.-Herodian and Hesychius kappa4904 gloss it as μετεωρίζει, φέρει, κουφίζει "lifts up, carries, makes light". Hesychius kappa4905 quotes the Sophoclean fragment (from his Kamikioi), with the plural κωχεύουσιν glossed ὀχοῦσι, μετεωρίζουσι "they transport, they lift up" (gloss also in the Etymologicum Gudianum). Hesychius also has ὀκωχεύειν glossed with ἔχειν, συνέχειν "to have, to hold".
