Thanks, Carlton. What had me confused about this was that BAG gives different
meanings for hRHGNUMI (tear, break) and hRHSSW (throw down, dash). This made
me think they were different words.

Your post drove me back to BAG and then to LSJM. I note that they list Mark
9:18 under hRASSW, for which they give the Attic as hRATTW and the Ionic and
Koine as hRHSSW.

Does this change things?
