Headword: Νῆσαι
Adler number: nu,340
Translated headword: to heap up
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to pile up.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] νήσουσι ["they will heap up"], [meaning] they will pile up.[2]
There is also [the aorist infinitive] νηῆσαι with three syllables.[3]
Greek Original:
Νῆσαι: σωρεῦσαι. καὶ Νήσουσι, σωρεύσουσι. ἔστι καὶ νηῆσαι τρισύλλαβον.
Notes:
[1] The headword is aorist infinitive of this verb, with similar glossing in other lexica and grammars; see also the Patmos scholia on Thucydides 2.52.4 (where the aorist participle τοὺς νήσαντας occurs in Thuc.'s account of how Athenian burial practises were disrupted and degraded by the plague).
[2] Same glossing in other lexica (references at Photius nu197 Theodoridis); evidently quoted from somewhere.
[3] cf. nu 179, nu 302, nu 527.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography
