αὔω 2

αὔω 2.
Grammatical information: v.
Meaning: `get a light, light a fire' (ε 490). On the meaning Borthwick, Class. Quart. 63 (1969) 296.
Dialectal forms: Myc. purautoro, du. \/puraustrō\/. ἔ᾽ναυον· ἔνθες, Κύπριοι H.
Compounds: ἐν-αύω `kindle' (Hdt.); - ἐξ-αῦσαι ἐξελεῖν (H., Pl. Com.) mit ἐξαυστήρ `fire-tong, κρεάγρα' (A.); - κατ-αῦσαι καταντλῆσαι (cod. καταυλῆσαι), καταδῦσαι H.; also καθαῦσαι ἀφανίσαι H.. - Further πυραύστης m. `moth that gets singed in the candle' (A.), πυραύστρα f. `pair of fire-tongs', πύραυστρον n. `id.' (Herod., cod. πύραστρον), all from πῦρ αὔειν. - Also with analogical loss of σ, γοιν-αῦτις οἰνοχόη H.
Origin: IE [Indo-European] [90] *h₂eus- `scoop, take'.
Etymology: The connection with fire seems secondary. Then αὔω may be from *αὔσω or *αὔσι̯ω, to ONo. ausa and Lat. hauriō (with secondary h-); the form would have pilosis. S. Schulze, Kl. Schr. 191 - S. also ἀφύσσω.
