Funny Greek Word

Date: Thu May 13 1999 - 13:26:41 EDT

I hope someone can take a crack at this one. It appears in Book 11, line 24
of the Paraphrase of John by Nonnos, corresponding to John 11:6

the word is: telessimorou

the line reads (in perfect dactyllic hexameter):
dichthadie^s parameibe telessimorou dromon e^ous.

it is paraphrasing:
tote men emeinen (epi to^i topo^i) duo hemeras

Thanks for your help
