Translated headword: rages
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] is angry/mad.
Greek Original:
Μαργαίνει: μαίνεται.
The headword is third person singular, present indicative active, of the verb μαργαίνω .
Same entry in other lexica (see the references at Photius mu107 Theodoridis), beginning with Hesychius mu260, and cf. also the scholia to Homer, Iliad 5.882, where the infinitive μαργαίνειν occurs and is glossed with μαίνεσθαι .
The only literary instance of the word as cited (which is perhaps unlikely to underlie Hesychius) is Gregory of Nazianzus, Poems about himself (Carmina de se ipso) PG 37.1315.12.
