Ὀτλήσοντες: ὑπομενοῦντες, κακοπαθήσοντες. ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: ἔνδικον ὀτλήσοντες ἀεὶ πόνον. ἐξ ὑμέων γάρ, φεῦ, πυρὸς ἐς τόσσην ἤλθομεν ἐργασίην.

[1] The headword is future participle of ὀτλέω , masculine nominative plural, presumably extracted from the quotation given. Cf. the Lexicon de spiritu (and Hesychius omicron1497).
[2] From an amatory epigram by Paulus Silentiarius: Greek Anthology 5.226.7-8. The 'you' addressed are the poet's susceptible eyes.
