Headword: Βομβάλβιοι
Adler number: beta,371
Translated headword: bumblers
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning pipers [aulêtai]. But bombulios ["bumbler"] with the addition of an alpha was said bombaulios, [someone] playing on the pipe.
Greek Original:
Βομβάλβιοι: ἀντὶ τοῦ αὐληταί. τὸ δὲ βομβύλιος ἐν προσθέσει τοῦ α εἶπε βομβαύλιος, παίζων παρὰ τὸν αὐλόν.
Notes:
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 βομβέω (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-).
