Headword: Θωρήσσετο
Adler number: theta,442
Translated headword: was arming herself
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning she] was fully equipping herself.
Greek Original:
Θωρήσσετο: καθωπλίζετο.
Notes:
Same or similar glossing in other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon, and several Homeric scholia. The headword -- imperfect indicative middle/passive (epic/Ionic), third person singular, of θωρήσσω -- is surely quoted from Homer, Iliad, 5.737 (= 8.388), where Athena arrays herself for battle; hence the translation here.
cf. generally theta 443.
Keywords: clothing; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; military affairs; mythology
