Greek display:    

Headword: *diplo/h
Adler number: delta,1259
Translated headword: duplicity
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] deceit.
Greek Original:
*diplo/h: h( a)pa/th.
Likewise in ps.-Zonaras (but with more material added there, which the Suda has as a separate entry: delta 1260).
The headword, feminine nominative singular, is derived from the adjective diplo/os "double" (delta 1258, delta 1261, delta 1262). LSJ s.v. II.2 notes its figurative application in e.g. Plutarch, Moralia 715F (w(/sper tina\s diplo/as ... th=s yuxh=s); and for the meanings "double-mindedness, ambiguity, duplicity", see also Lampe s.v.
