Headword: Ῥῶσθαι
Adler number: rho,265
Translated headword: to charge, to move with speed, to rush
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to make haste.[1]
Greek Original:
Ῥῶσθαι: σπουδάζειν.
The headword is the aorist middle/passive infinitive corresponding to the verb ῥώομαι , I move with speed; see generally LSJ s.v.
This form of the verb is attested only in lexicography. However, the imperfect indicative middle/passive, third person plural (ἐρρώοντο , unaugmented epic form ῥώοντο ) occurs at e.g. Homer, Iliad 18.411 (web address 1). The epic form again (but with elision; Smyth 70) describes charging warriors at Homer, Iliad 11.50 (web address 2). Instances of the aorist indicative middle, third person plural (ἐρρώσαντο ), are at Homer, Iliad 24.616 (web address 3) and Homer, Odyssey 24.69 (web address 4); cf. epsilon 3072.
[1] The gloss is the present active infinitive of the verb σπουδάζω , I make haste; see generally LSJ s.v. The headword is identically glossed in Photius' Lexicon (rho213 Theodoridis) and already in Hesychius rho588.
