Adler number: lambda,732
Translated headword: I strip, I uncover

[Meaning] I unclothe.
Greek Original:
Λωπίζω: τὸ ἐκδύω.
The headword verb literally means to disrobe (someone); cf. generally lambda 731, lambda 724, lambda 735. Its occurrences are confined to lexica (e.g. Hesychius lambda1510) and grammars, but for the compound ἐκλωπίζω (epsilon 487) see e.g. Sophocles, Trachiniae 925, where it occurs with tmesis: ἐκ δ' ἐλώπισεν (web address 1).
