Headword: *diafo/rhma
Adler number: delta,830
Translated headword: to-and-fro
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the game [of that name].[1] Also [sc. attested is] diaforh/sei ["he/she/it will separate"], [meaning] would become separate.[2]
Greek Original:
*diafo/rhma: to\ pai/gnion. kai\ *diaforh/sei, dia/foros ge/nhtai.
[1] Apparently of ball, thrown from one player to another: see LSJ s.v; attested in this sense only in lexicography.
[2] This verb, diaforh/sei, is related to the headword diafo/rhma, a neuter noun. It must be quoted from somewhere; perhaps Isaeus 11.31, though the gloss given is not quite right for that passage.
