Similar entry in other lexica: see the references at Photius pi106 Theodoridis, where the editor notes that the second glossing participle, transmitted in the Suda and elsewhere as plhrou/menon, should be klhrou/menon "drawing lots". Hesychius has the entry pallome/nwn glossed with klhroume/nwn; that genitive plural is extracted from Homer, Iliad 15.191, where Poseidon recalls that when he and his brothers Zeus and Hades drew lots for domains, the sea fell to him (web address 1). See generally LSJ s.v. pa/llw, I.3. The present entry is thus more likely to have been generated by that passage than by (e.g.) the instance of pallo/menon in Oppian, Halieutica 1.72.
