ἀρι-δείκετος

ἀρι-δείκετος
Grammatical information: adj.
Meaning: `most famous' (Il.)
Origin: IE [Indo-European] [188] *deiḱ- `show'
Etymology: Formerly connected with δηδέχαται (with metrical lengthening for *ἀρι- δέκετος; Schulze Q. 242), but this form is now seen as a form of δείκνυμι, so that ἀριδείκετος must also, as seemed obvious anyhow, derive from this verb \/ root.
