ἁ̄λής

ἁ̄λής (ἀ̄λής)
Grammatical information: adj.
Meaning: `thronged, crowded' (Hdt.).
Other forms: The spiritus asper is uncertain: it is regular in ἁλής, but not for Dor. ἀλία.
Derivatives: ἁλίη, Dor. ἀλία `assembly of people'. From it Dor. ἀλιαία `id.', Att. ἡλιαία. The ἡ- in Att. ἡλιαία must be false Ionicism of a Dorian loanword (influence of ἥλιος?); s. Ed. Meyer Philol. 48, 187.
Origin: IE [Indo-European] [1138] *uel- `press (together)'
Etymology: Aeol. ἀολλής has the same meaning; if it is identical, they may go back to *ἁ-Ϝαλνής resp. *ἀ-Ϝολνής, with α copulativum (*sm̥-) and *-ul̥n-. ἀλανέως ὁλοσχερῶς, Ταραντῖνοι H. and αϜλανεως (meaning uncertain, Elis) might also be the same word. A hapax is ἀελλής, Γ 13 (full grade would be regular). One supposes a noun *Ϝέλ-νος `Gedränge, Menge', suffix as in ἔθνος, σμῆνος (Chantr. Form. 420), which would belong to εἴλω, q.v. Cf. ἅλις, ἀολλής.
