Headword: Θεείω
Adler number: theta,97
Translated headword: I admire
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] I marvel [at].
Greek Original:
Θεείω: θαυμάζω.
This form -- apparently present indicative active, first person singular, of a verb with stem θεει- -- is attested only here. From the gloss it would seem to be connected with a middle/passive infinitive θεεῖσθαι , defined in Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon (86.18) as θαυμάζειν ('to marvel at'), and apparently (in Apollonius' view) related to the verb θεάομαι ('I gaze at'). For reasons of accentuation and meaning it is less likely that the headword is a verbal derivative of either θεεῖον ('sulfur': theta 96) or the late epic adjective θέειος , which is apparently a metrical expansion of θεῖος ('divine'), although the latter could conceivably produce a meaning appropriate to the present gloss ('I regard as divine', 'I hallow'). See LSJ s.v. θέειον (web address 1).
Adler cites Lexicon Ambrosianum 202 as a comparandum.
