Greek Original:
Παρπόδα: εὐθύς, παραυτίκα. εἰ δέ σε δίκη παρπόδα μὴ τιμωρὸς ἐτίσατο, δὶς τόσον αὖθις ἔσσεται ἐν πλεόνεσσι παλίντροπος.
[1] The headword -- from παρὰ πόδα : see pi 417 and LSJ s.v. πούς I.A.4.b -- is presumably extracted from the quotation.
[2] Callimachus, Hecale fr. 358 (where the headword is printed as a two-word phrase, πὰρ πόδα ); cf. Crusius' edition of Babrius pr. 219. Adler praises Küster's emendation of σε δίκη to δίκη σε (which improves the meter).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; meter and music; poetry
