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.
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.
