Headword: Ῥέζει
Adler number: rho,91
Translated headword: makes [sacrifices]
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she] sacrifices, does [them], acts as priest/priestess, prepares [them].
Greek Original:
Ῥέζει: θυσιάζει, ποιεῖ, ἱερατεύει, παρασκευάζει.
Notes:
The headword is third person singular, present indicative, of ῥέζω ; same or similar glossing in other lexica; evidently extracted from somewhere. (Adler classifies the entry as an Homeric gloss, and if she is right the source will be Homer, Odyssey 22.158; however, there are alternatives in (e.g.) fragments of Pherecrates and Epicharmus.)
See also rho 90, rho 101.
This verb comes from the root *wreg-/werg-, being related to the noun ἔργον and cognate with English "work."
