Headword: *)anaballo/menos
Adler number: alpha,1799
Translated headword: deferring, postponing, putting off
Vetting Status: high
[Used] with an accusative. [Meaning one who is] delaying. But a)nabalo/menos ["having begun to play"] with one lambda means having made a prelude. "So having begun to play, as is the custom, he went through a short hymn."[1]
Also [sc. attested are] a)nabolai/, the preludes.[2]
Also [sc. attested is] a)naba/llomai ["I postpone"], [used] with an accusative.
Greek Original:
*)anaballo/menos: ai)tiatikh=|. u(pertiqe/menos: a)nabalo/menos de\ di' e(no\s l a)nti\ tou= prooimiasa/menos. a)nabalo/menos ou)=n, w(/sper ei)w/qei, braxu\n diech=lqen u(/mnon. kai\ *)anabola/s, ta\ prooi/mia. kai\ *)anaba/llomai: ai)tiatikh=|.
After the grammatical point, the first and principal part of this entry differentiates between the present middle participle and the aorist middle participle (both of them masculine nominative singulars) of a)naba/llw (here bearing different senses -- but see next note).
cf. alpha 1798, alpha 1800.
[1] Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana 4.39. [NB: while this quotation does illustrate a)nabalo/menos in the sense identified, it could in other circumstances exemplify the 'defer/postpone' sense also. Witness e.g. the remark attributed to Alexander the Great when asked how he had achieved so much: mhde\n a)nabalo/menos.]
[2] Accusative plural, again alpha 1810.
