Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"O cheat!" He has created some deity. Such as a mishap or something of the kind. As someone might say, "O injustice and deprivation!" He has manufactured the name of some daimon,[1] giving her a bodily form, from the [sc. notion of] cheating, and disturbing and depriving.
Greek Original:
Παιόλη: ὦ παιόλη. θεόν τινα πεποίηκεν. οἷον ἐκτροπὴν ἤ τινα τοιαύτην. ὡς ἂν εἴποι τις, ὦ ἀδικία καὶ ἀποστέρησις. πέπλακε τὸ ὄνομα δαίμονός τινος, σωματοποιήσας αὐτήν, παρὰ τὸ ἀπαιολεῖν, καὶ κινεῖν καὶ ἀποστερεῖν.
Notes:
Aristophanes, Clouds 1150 (web address 1), with comment from the fuller scholia there. Strepsiades sarcastically addresses Socrates, for having successfully taught argumentation to Phidippides, as ὦ παμβασίλει' ἀΠαιόλη , O omnipotent Cheat. cf. generally alpha 2959. In the present entry, alternative word-division has produced the headword παιόλη , otherwise unattested; see also pi 878.
