Headword: *dustra/pelos
Adler number: delta,1701
Translated headword: intransigent
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] difficult to move, unalterable, difficult to shift, [one] who did not find [a way] to escape suffering. Thus they also say 'intransigent ditch': one which is not easy to undo.[1] Or, one who is immovable in anger or disposition or greediness, the type [they call] also 'intractable'. Sophokles [says]: "[where, where] is he lying, the intransigent" -- that is the ill-tempered -- "the ill-named Aias?".[2] As even Aias himself said: "Ai! ai! Who would have ever thought that my name would provide such an appellation for my misfortune? Now I have reason to cry 'ai!' twice [...], for such are the misfortunes I am encountering."[3]

[1] So the transmitted text of this phrase, but it looks odd. Adler notes (but does not adopt) two suggested emendations of its noun: to o)/rghma (cf. LSJ s.v.) or to pra=gma (as in Heniochus fr. 4 Kock and K.-A.).
