Probably from commentary to Homer where the headword (neuter singular nominative/accusative of the adjective perikallh/s) appears nine times: Iliad 9.578, 11.632 (cited by Theodoridis), 23.897, 24.234; Odyssey 5.236, 8.430, 18.300, 19.34, 23.50. (For the glossing Adler cites the scholia to Iliad 1.603, where perikalle/os occurs.)
