Headword: *tupth/seis
Adler number: tau,1182
Translated headword: you will strike
Vetting Status: high
[*tupth/seis means the same as] tu/yeis.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the present tense] tuptw= ["I strike"]; [used] with an accusative.[2]
Greek Original:
*tupth/seis: tu/yeis. kai\ *tuptw=: ai)tiatikh=|.
[1] The headword is quoted from Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 21, on which see further, next note; tupth/sw is the usual future of tu/ptw in Attic (see LSJ s.v.)
[2] A contract-verb present, not mentioned by LSJ (but postulated in a scholion to the Plutus passage, and elsewhere); perhaps a back-formation from the future and aorist.

Headword: *bomba/lbioi
Adler number: beta,371
Translated headword: bumblers
Vetting Status: high
Meaning pipers [aulêtai]. But bombulios ["bumbler"] with the addition of an alpha was said bombaulios, [someone] playing on the pipe.
Greek Original:
*bomba/lbioi: a)nti\ tou= au)lhtai/. to\ de\ bombu/lios e)n prosqe/sei tou= a ei)=pe bombau/lios, pai/zwn para\ to\n au)lo/n.
The gloss on this entry is taken from the scholia to Aristophanes, Acharnians 866, where bombaulios occurs (web address 1 below). Bombaulios is a comic compound from the verb bombe/w (beta 372, beta 373, beta 374) and the noun aulos ("pipe": alpha 4447).
The headword seems to have a metathesis of -aul- (pronounced -avl-) to -alv- (spelled -alb-).

Headword: *)apokhdh/santes
Adler number: alpha,3349
Translated headword: having been careless
Vetting Status: high
Meaning [they] having been cowardly.[1] Homer [sc. uses the word].[2] But in Sophron [sc. it means] having been cowardly [and] having paid no heed.[3]
Also [sc. attested is] a)pokhdh/sontai ["they will be careless"], [meaning] they will break off their grief.[4]
Greek Original:

[1] The headword is aorist active participle of a)pokhde/w, masculine nominative plural. Same gloss in Photius, similar in other lexica.
[2] Homer, Iliad 23.413, where in fact the dual a)pokhdh/sante occurs (web address 1 below).
[3] Sophron [C5 BCE Syracusan writer of mimes: sigma 893] fr. 78 Kaibel, now 142 K.-A.

Headword: *pe/lton
Adler number: pi,956
Translated headword: pelton
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] armour for the chest,[1] and a kind of salt-fish.[2]
Or a shield without a rim.[3]
Greek Original:
*pe/lton: qwrakiko\n o(/plon, kai\ ei)=dos tari/xou. h)\ a)spi\s i)/tun mh\ e)/xousa.
cf. pi 954, pi 955.
[1] This seems the most appropriate way to translate the phrase transmitted here, qwrakiko\n o(/plon, but note that Hesychius pi1365 s.v. pe/lths has *Qra|/kiko\n o(/plon, "Thracian armour".
[2] For the application of the headword -- or more exactly its variant pelte (pi 955) -- to salt-fish cf. Hesychius loc.cit. and especially Diphilos of Siphnos as cited by Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 3.121B (3.93 Kaibel): "the river crow-fish (korakinos), the one from the Nile, which some call a pelte".
[3] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Lysistrata 563, where this word occurs in the accusative case.

Headword: *)/wneuon
Adler number: omega,108
Translated headword: they were hauling up with windlasses
Vetting Status: high
In Thucydides, [meaning] they were moving and rotating;[1] for a windlass[2] of the mill [is] the thing that is moved; and windlasses [are] devices of such a kind.
Thucydides [writes]: "they tied the stakes and were hauling them up with windlasses". That is, they were using windlasses.
A windlass is [sc. in this instance] a device fixed to the tops of the light boats, from which they would toss nooses around the stakes and easily drag them up from the sea-bed. For the device is so very strong that a heavy drag-net can be dragged by two men without difficulty. The fishermen who drag them, brushing along the ground, call the device a distaff. A lot of effort is required to drag it up, even when a forked beam has been put in front of it; for the resistance of the things dragged opposes it.

Headword: *moxqhri/a
Adler number: mu,1308
Translated headword: depravity, nastiness, wickedness
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the desire of [= for] silver/money; or the demand of [= for] silver/money. Aristophanes [writes]: "they soften their wickedness with a word."[1] Also [sc. attested is the phrase] "hide of a nasty ox". Meaning one withered and emaciated and foul and leathered, or deathly, or feeble. Aristophanes [writes]: "[you] who used to undercut and sell the hide of a nasty ox."[2]

For this headword, a feminine abstract noun in the nominative (and vocative) singular, see also mu 1309 (and generally LSJ s.v.). Of the quotations given, the first illustrates its accusative case, the second the genitive case of the cognate adjective (for which see also mu 1310).

[2] Aristophanes, Knights 316 (web address 2), with scholion: the sausage-seller accuses Paphlagon (= Kleon: kappa 1731) of having sold hides that were sliced from ox carcasses, rather than pulled, so as to retain more fat and appear thicker, as if from a younger and healthier animal.

Headword: *)egxutri/striai
Adler number: epsilon,191
Translated headword: bone-gathering women
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] those who bring the drink-offerings to the dead. Minos or On Law [uses the word]. They also used to call doing harm "putting into an urn" [kataxutri/sai], as Aristophanes [illustrates].[1] *)egxutri/striai is also what they called those [women] who purify the unclean by pouring over them the blood of a sacrifice, and those who sing the dirges; also the midwives who expose infants in urns.[2]

Likewise in Photius (following Pausanias the Atticist and Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon); also cf. scholia on [Plato], Minos 315C (where the accusative case of a variant spelling of the headword appears: e)gxutistri/as), and on Aristophanes, Wasps 289 (where the verb e)gxutriei=s appears).

Headword: *lugke/ws o)cuwpe/steron ble/pein
Adler number: lambda,775
Translated headword: to see more sharp-sightedly than Lynkeus
Vetting Status: high
This man was a brother of Idas;[1] but Aristophanes in Danaids [makes him] a son of Aigyptos.[2] He was the sharpest-eyed by such a long way[3] that he was able to see, through a fir, Kastor treacherously murder his brother, as Pindar says.[4] And Apollonius in Argonautica [writes]: "if the story is indeed true, that that man could easily see even below the earth".[5]
Greek Original:
*lugke/ws o)cuwpe/steron ble/pein: ou(=tos e)ge/neto a)delfo\s *)/ida: o( de\ *)aristofa/nhs e)n *danai/+sin ui(o\s *ai)gu/ptou. tosou=ton de\ o)cuwpe/statos h)=n, w(s di' e)la/ths i)dei=n *ka/stora dolofonh/santa to\n a)delfo/n, w(/s fhsi *pi/ndaros. kai\ *)apollw/nios e)n *)argonau/tais: ei) e)teo/n ge pe/lei kle/os, a)ne/ra kei=non r(hi+di/ws kai\ e)/nerqen u(po\ xqono\s au)ga/zesqai.
The proverbial phrase which provides the present headword is employed in Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 210, the scholia to which are drawn upon here; cf. also Aristophanes fr.260.
[1] The sons of Aphareus (cousins of Kastor and Polydeukes, the Dioskouroi).
[2] This is a different Lynkeus, king of Argos [Myth, Place] (Pindar, Nemean 10.12: web address 1) and husband of Hypermnestra, who spares him when she and her sister Danaids (daughters of Danaos) are instructed to kill their husbands (all sons of Aigyptos) by their father. Cf. ps.-Apollodorus, Bibliotheca 2.1.5 (web address 2).
[3] His sharp sight becomes proverbial, as in the headword phrase. Cf. Appendix Proverbiorum 3.71.2 *Lugke/ws o)cu/teron ble/pei ["he sees more acutely than Lynkeus"].
[4] This is odd. Pindar in Nemean 10.60ff. (web address 1) tells of Idas killing Kastor after Lynkeus has seen Kastor (and possibly Polydeukes: text and interpretation uncertain, cf. the scholia to Pindar, Nemean 10.114a) hiding in an oak. Kypria F15 Bernabé has Lynkeus see both Kastor and Polydeukes hiding in an oak, while the summary of the Kypria in Proclus, Chrestomathy 108ff. also has Idas kill Kastor. Although Kastor kills Lynkeus in Theocritus, Idylls 22.193ff., there is no mention of Lynkeus seeing through a tree. Should the aorist participle dolofonh/santa be emended to the future dolofonh/sonta ["intending/about to murder treacherously"]? This would tally with the version in the scholia to Pindar, Nemean 10.114b -- where Lynkeus sees Kastor waiting in ambush for Idas, and tells Idas, who wounds Kastor with a spear -- and ps.-Apollodorus, Bibliotheca 3.11.2 (web address 3) where Lynkeus sees Kastor and Polydeukes waiting in ambush, and tells Idas, who kills Kastor.

[1] The headword phrase occurs at Aristophanes, Acharnians 489 (web address 1). For the comment, cf. Timaeus, Platonic Lexicon s.v. a)/gami.
[2] Aelian fr.125b Domingo-Forasté (122 Hercher). The allusion is presumably to something in Homer, Iliad 3 (where Menelaus and Paris fight a duel).

[1] Perhaps (as Adler suggests) from a scholion on Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 173, where me/ta in this sense occurs. On me/ta in the sense of me/testi, see generally LSJ s.v. meta/, F (where this instance is not cited), and cf. mu 678.
[2] Literally 'O evil head'; for the idiom see generally LSJ s.v. kefalh/, I.2. The instance of it quoted here is unidentifiable.
