[244] Γ῀ηρας ὁμοίιον=Il. 4.315, where see Leaf's note. “ὁμοίιος” is an epithet of “γῆρας, νεῖκος, πόλεμος” and “θάνατος”, but the meaning is very doubtful, as the usual translation “common to all” has no parallel in any use of “ὁμοῖος”. It is probable that the two words were distinct in origin. Christ connects “ὁμοίιος” with “ὠμός”: Skt. amIva, Lat. aerumna, for “ὀμίϝιος”, i.e. “cruel.”
