LSJ entry at web address 1.
[1] Aristophanes, Acharnians 1179 (web address 2), with material from the scholia there; cf. epsilon 1609. The headword itself -- neuter of this adjective used adverbially -- has actually been transmitted as pali/norron, which editors (and LSJ) accept. In the second, fuller gloss, Bernhardy rejected the final poiei=n as corrupt.
