εἶπον (root ϝεπ, cf. voco), ἔειπον, iter. εἴπεσκεν, subj. εἴπωμι, εἴπῃσθα, aor. 1 εἶπα, 2 pl. εἴπατε: speak, say; strictly of an utterance with regard to its tenor and ethical expression rather than to the subject-matter (cf. ἔπος); hence the word may signify ‘command’ with foll. inf., εἰπεῖν τε γυναιξὶν | κληῖσαι μεγάροιο θύρα_ς, Od. 21.235; with nearer indication of the feeling, εὐχομενος δ᾽ ἄρα εἶπεν, Od. 7.330; ὀχθήσα_ς δ̓ ἄρα εἶπε, Il. 18.5; εἶπε δ̓ ἄρα κλαίουσα, Il. 19.286; freq. w. obj., ἔπος, μῦθον, ἀγγελίην, etc.; so w. acc. of person named, οὐδ᾽ ἢν Ἀγαμεμνονα εἴπῃς, ‘pronounce the name of,’ ‘name,’ Il. 1.90 ; ἔσται μὰν ὅτ᾽ ἂν αὖτε φίλην γλαυκώπιδα εἴπῃ, i. e. when I shall hear him call me by this name, Il. 8.373, Od. 19.334.
