Headword: *)/aplhton
Adler number: alpha,3231
Translated headword: unapproachable, terrible
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] insatiable/unsatisfied.
Greek Original:
*)/aplhton: a)plh/rwton.
The headword is the epic and Ionic form of a)/platos (see LSJ at web address 1), here in the masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular. Different glossing in Hesychius, but the same in the scholia to Hesiod, Theogony 315, from where it must be quoted (neuter, used adverbially).
This glossing implies a relation to pi/mplhmi "fill" rather than to pela/zw "approach."
