Translation:

Exuro is Greek for Latin emingo, mingo {"to urinate"; lit. "I urinate"}.


Commentary:

Greek ἐξουρέω /exouréō/ means "to pass with the urine; make water". Simon is showing the contracted form: ἐξουρῶ /exourô/, which he translates with Latin mingo "to make water, void urine" as well as the prefixed medieval Latin form emingo, cf. Latham (1973) s.v. emingo "to urinate".
