I'm going to second what Lieven said in his email about not sticking too
much to the definitions. If you know what {Hergh}, {ngev} and {-wI'} mean,
then the result from combining them should form naturally. Don't lock it
down to a specific, limited, set of English (or greek) words. If I was
forced to add this to my dictionary (I don't have it in mine:
https://hol.kag.org/words/Hergh_ngevwI'), I would label it as "a seller of
medicine" and avoid the whole "thing/person" issue.
