Notes:
[1] If, as seems reasonable to assume, the headword is extracted from the quotation, it is neuter singular of this adjective (a compound of the adverb πάλιν , "back", and the verbal root βολ- , "throw"; cf. pi 89, and LSJ entry at web address 1).
[2] Part of Menander Protector fr. 10.1 Blockley.
