Headword: *diach=nai
Adler number: delta,680
Translated headword: to card
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to break apart.[1] Aristophanes [writes]: "to card at the tips." For flocks of wool have their ends and tips compressed; and whenever they pluck them, the flock is broken apart. And so in both senses it is necessary to break apart: both the compressed tips of the wool in the fleece and the heads of the wicked men who join together in [sc. public] affairs.
