Headword: Lêïzetai
Adler number: lambda,424
Translated headword: seizes booty, plunders
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Used] with an accusative.[1] [Meaning he/she/it] takes prisoner, plunders, ravages, lays waste. But perhaps it is also said in a passive sense.[2]
Greek Original:
Lêïzetai: aitiatikêi. aichmalôtizei, diarpazei, porthei, erêmoi. isôs de kai en pathêtikôi sêmainomenôi legetai.
Notes:
The headword is third person singular of lhi/zomai; perhaps from (or generated by) Hesiod, Works and Days 702, where lhi/zet' occurs (though the precise form here has already featured in kappa 423 and kappa 832).
[1] Likewise or similarly in some other lexica.
[2] Same material (minus the grammatical point) in the Synagoge and elsewhere: see the references at Photius, Lexicon lambda250 Theodoridis. The headword is in the middle voice, "plunders"; the definition speculates that it might also be used with a passive meaning, "is plundered". LSJ s.v. lhi+/zomai II recognises such usage in e.g. Eurpides, Medea 256 e)k gh=s barba/rou lelh|sme/nh "seized from a barbarian land".
