Ῥῦσαι: λυτρῶσαι.
Aorist imperative of ῥύομαι , extracted from Homer, Iliad 17.645, where Ajax prays to Zeus for respite from the fog (web address 1).
The gloss appears, by its accentuation, to be an aorist active infinitive of λυτρόω ; the aorist middle imperative would be λύτρωσαι with accent on the first syllable.
