The headword is presumably (though not demonstrably) extracted from the quotatopn given
[1] Aelian fr. 345 Domingo-Forasté (349 Hercher). The verb w)di/nw seems here to refer to the envy as a true labor of the mind. This sense is applied to "agonies of thought", by Plato, Theaetetus 148E; cf. also Euripides, Hippolytus 258, Heraclidae 644; Sophocles, Ajax 794. See also Plato, Republic 407C, for the meaning of "worry for something" and Hesychius omega55 (gloss pa/sxei, lupei=tai besides ti/ktei, e)gkumonei=. The verb has a brief mention at omega 22.
