[Meaning he/she/it] fears.[1]
Properly ὀρρωδεῖν [refers] to irrational animals' fear. It is formed from indicating fear by shaking the tail [οὐρά ]; or from hiding the genitals with this part in the condition of fear; or because the buttocks [ὄρρος ][2] of those who are afraid are the first [part] to sweat. The [verb] ὀρρωδεῖν [3] [comes] from ὄρρος , which is the part between the buttocks of a pigeon. For the part tends to tremble.[4]
Greek Original:
Ὀρρωδεῖ: φοβεῖται. κυρίως μὲν ὀρρωδεῖν ἐπὶ τοῦ τῶν ἀλόγων δέους. πεποίηται δὲ παρὰ τὸ σείοντα τὴν οὐρὰν δηλοῦν τὸ δέος: ἢ παρὰ τὸ ἐγκρύπτειν τῷ μέρει τούτῳ τὰ αἰδοῖα κατὰ τὴν τοῦ δέους διάθεσιν: ἢ ὅτι τῶν φοβουμένων εἴωθεν ὁ ὄρρος πρῶτος ἱδροῦν. ἔστι τὸ ὀρρωδεῖν ἀπὸ τοῦ ὄρρου, ὅ ἐστι μεσοπύγιον τῆς περιστερᾶς. ἔστι γὰρ τρομερὸν τὸ μέρος.
