Greek display:    

Headword: Φθεῖσθαι
Adler number: phi,485
Translated headword: to waste away
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to be utterly destroyed.
Greek Original:
Φθεῖσθαι: διαφθείρεσθαι.
Notes:
Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius phi142, where however Theodoridis obelizes φθεῖσθαι , the form of the headword transmitted there and here, and favours φθίσθαι . For that spelling of the aorist middle infinitive of φθίνω cf. phi 500 (but for φθεῖσθαι cf. already under phi 131). According to LSJ, φθεῖσθαι is a frequent varia lectio where φθίσθαι occurs in Homer.
Adler classified the entry as an Homeric gloss, but it might, rather derive from Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 3.754.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; poetry
