Headword: *sxolh/
Adler number: sigma,1802
Translated headword: leisure
Vetting Status: high
[The word sxolh/] is not the place in which they are at school and spend time on education, nor is it culture and spending time on words/speeches, but [it is that] which most people, incorrectly, call eukairia; the [verb] eukairein [is] barbaric; but instead of eukairein they speak of engaging in schole. Eukairia is not a barbaric noun, but it does not apply to schole; rather, to some opportunity for natural goodness and excellence. And meaning not at all.[1]
So schole [means] doing nothing, or lingering on something.[2] And instead of sxola/zein they say eu)kairei=n.
And Aelian [writes]: "I myself resorted to these things, not engaging in schole anywhere to honour random people's evils with my own words, but in order that others would not do comparable ones."[3]
So schole [is], to the majority, (?)ill-timed opportunity.[4]

cf. (e.g.) alpha 4303, delta 797, epsilon 2654, sigma 1795, sigma 1803.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica, and in various scholia (e.g. to Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus 1286, and to Plato, Republic 610D); references at Photius sigma919 Theodoridis.
[2] cf. Hesychius sigma3049.
[3] Aelian fr. 29 Domingo-Forasté (26 Hercher), as part of fragments concerning Caligula.
[4] cf. the scholia to Plato, Euthyphro 6C -- though it is the Suda which adds the paradoxical adjective. Adler notes (but does not follow) the attractive emendation in the editio princeps from a)/kairos to a)/kuros, and Kuster's suggestion of the adverb a)ku/rws, as earlier in the entry.
