533 aparnéomai (from 575 /apó, "from" which intensifies 720 /arnéomai, "deny") – properly, to deny, looking back to what was originally refused (rejected, forsaken). Note the force of the prefix, 575 /apó ("away from").

720 (arneomai) already means "deny," so 533 (aparnéomai) suggests "strongly reject" (especially the source). That is, utterly refusing to recognize the original source involved. Hence 533 (aparnéomai) can imply "ignore, disown, or repudiate" (Abbott-Smith, so also in Herodotus, Thucydides).

[The high level of personal involvement (interest) motivating 533 (aparnéomai) accounts for why it always in the Greek middle voice.]
