Adler number: sigma,698

[Meaning he/she/it] is being rejected, is being dishonored.[1]
As [in] sku/balon ["trash"].[2]

In the Epigrams: "and not tasting post-banquet trash, hurry up and go to other houses."[4]

The headword is present indicative middle, third person singular, of skubali/zw. The only literary attestation of this form of the word comes in the Alexander Romance (Recension a) 3.31.1.
[1] = Synagoge sigma138, Photius sigma378 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius sigma1138.
[2] cf. alpha 3468 (gloss).
[3] The word kusi/balon is probably hypothetical, as it is only attested in attempts, like this, to etymologize sku/balon; cf. Etymologicum Gudianum 505.6-8, Etymologicum Magnum 719.53, and Meletius, On the Nature of Man 38.10.
[4] Greek Anthology 6.302.6-7 (Leonidas of Tarentum), in which a destitute old man is addressing a bothersome mouse. This seems to have been one of the favorite epigrams of the Suda compiler(s). Other parts of it are quoted at alpha 3965, eta 380, kappa 2424, mu 702, and sigma 676. In the punctuation of Beckby's edition of the Anthology, the two phrases belong to different sentences.
