I hardly needed a dictionary to understand The Shepherd of Hermas Greek text until I stumbled upon a word which I cannot make out:
it is the verb Ἀνελήμωθην, at the 5 th section of the 1st Vision. Here the heavenly woman whom Hermas had previously seen by the river and fallen in love with, now says " I was taken up ( Ἀνελήμωθην ) to Heaven .."
It sounds like a passive Aorist 1st person singular, but I cannot find the verb.
Can anybody help please?

I hope you are well Franco! My edition of Hermas (by M. Whittaker) uses the verb ἀνελήμφθην (aorist of ἀναλαμβάνειν).

O.K. , it makes sense now! It was a typo on the text at

I knew there was something wrong, because usually I don't have to rake my brain for so long before finding a verb, even on my own, or with the help of the TLG online dictionary.
Thank you so much!
