The headword phrase is the beginning of the quotation continued in the body of the entry. The Greek of the headword provides an example of polyptoton: the first word, "evil [man]" (kako/s) is the masculine nominative singular of the adjective used substantively while the second word, "evilly" (kakw=s), is the adverb of the same root.
