Headword: *)/epaulis
Adler number: epsilon,1991
Translated headword: encampment
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the dwelling, in which they make the camp.[1] But a 'camp' [is] the bedding.[2] Also [sc. attested is] 'encampment-bound', one who is going to the encampment.[3]
"Harming no one among men or mortals, he departed encampment-bound."[4] The story [is] about a lion.
Greek Original:

[1] At this point Adler cites Hesychius (presumably epsilon4260) and a scholium to Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 1.800. Both use a word similar to oi)ki/a ('dwelling') to gloss the headword (or a related word), but otherwise these sources have more in common with the Suda's second entry under this headword, epsilon 1993.
[2] Repeated from alpha 4444.
[3] Again epsilon 1992. For comment, see next note here.
[4] Greek Anthology 6.221.7-8 (Leonidas of Tarentum 53 Gow-Page; cf. Gow and Page, p. 124). The Suda and the Palatine manuscript of the Anthology both have e)paulo/sunos ('encampment-bound') whereas other mss have a)paulo/sunos ('away from the encampment'), which make better sense. Neither adjective occurs elsewhere. Maas suggested emending to e)p' a)/llo si/nos ('toward some other mischief'). The Suda and the Palatine ms also have bro/twn ('mortals') where other mss have bo/twn ('livestock'). Surely the latter is correct.
