ἱδρόω ἶδος This Verb, like its oppos. ῥιγόω, is contracted epic into ω and ωι instead of ου and οι, part. fem. ἱδρῶσα Il., lengthd. ἱδρώουσα, masc. acc. ἱδρώοντα, -οντας; but in Xen. we find ἱδροῦντι, not ἱδρῶντι.

to sweat, perspire, Hom. (esp. in Il.); ἵππους ὑπὸ ζυγοῦ ἱδρώοντας Od.; ἱδρώσει τελαμών it shall reek with sweat, Il.; c. acc. cogn., ἱδρῶθ᾽ ὃν ἵδρωσα id=Il.
