Adler number: epsilon,1526
Translated headword: having rolled out

Almost certainly derived, as Adler states, from the scholia to Aristophanes, Clouds 32 (where the headword occurs: web address 1); and cf. Etymologicum Magnum 64.16.
[1] The headword is aorist active participle, masculine nominative singular, of e)cali/ndw; cf. epsilon 1726.
[2] An imprecise quotation of Aristophanes, Frogs 904 (web address 2), where only "many rolling-grounds" occurs. The words "and tumblings-out" are an intrusive gloss from the scholia. The line is quoted accurately at alpha 1233, alpha 4516, and lambda 441.
