Adler number: lambda,539
Translated headword: I desire earnestly
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] I am eager [for].
Greek Original:
Λιλαίομαι: προθυμοῦμαι.
Note:
Though the form of the entry (paralleled in other lexica) is paradigmatic, this first-person singular does occur in Homer (Iliad 13.253, Odyssey 15.308); the present gloss, however, reflects the scholia to Iliad 3.133, where the plural participle λιλαιόμενοι occurs.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; ethics; poetry
