Headword: Λήθω
Adler number: lambda,419
Translated headword: I cause [someone] to forget
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] I escape [someone's] notice.[1] Also [sc. attested is] λήσομεν ["we will cause (someone) to forget"] likewise.[2]
Greek Original:
Λήθω: λανθάνω. καὶ Λήσομεν ὁμοίως.
[1] The present λήθω (Doric λάθω ) occurs as a variant of λανθάνω -- the gloss here -- especially in compounds. Same glossing in Hesychius, ps.-Herodian, and a scholion on Homer, Iliad 1.561, where the headword occurs (web address 1).
[2] Evidently quoted from somewhere; there are numerous possibilities (e.g. Euripides, Aristophanes, Xenophon, Demosthenes, Apollonius Rhodius, Lucian).
