Ooops, it should have been:

     GHRASKW is old verb from GHRAS (age) like GERWN (old man) and refers
     to the decay of old age so that both ideas appear here in opposition
     to KAINOS (PALAIOS) and NEOS (GERAIOS).

Thanks for the correction on my spelling - I transcribed Robertson 
incorrectly.
