Headword: *pali/mbolos
Adler number: pi,89
Translated headword: contrary
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] disreputable, changeable, servile. Clement [?defines it thus].[1] Possible too, instead of palimbolos, [is] enantiobolos ["contrary"],[2] [meaning] of opposite opinion, as also a stubborn donkey.[3]
Greek Original:
*pali/mbolos: a)do/kimos, eu)meta/bolos, a)neleu/qeros. *klh/mhs. du/natai kai\ a)nti\ tou= pali/mbolos e)nantio/bolos, e)nantiognw/mwn, w(s kai\ pali/ndhs o)/noma.
For this adjective see already pi 88. (LSJ entry at web address 1.) The present entry is also in Photius, Lexicon pi72 Theodoridis, and paralleled elsewhere.
[1] This is taken to be C. the Platonic commentator [see eta 481, at n.4], fr. 3 Dyck, and the passage that has prompted the entry is probably Plato, Laws 705A, h)/qh pali/mbola kai\ a)/pista.
[2] So too in Eudemus, but e)nantio/boulos in Photius.
[3] The Suda's pali/ndhs o)/noma is faulty; pali/ndhs o)/nos is the reading in Eudemus and Photius. (The adjective does not occur elsewhere, but its general meaning seems clear. If emendation is insisted upon, Theodoridis mentions Dindorf's palintribh/s.)
