One who does not turn back is called a)peri/tropos ["not turning around"]. "For neither the child of Agamemnon [is] not turning back nor the god who rules beside Acheron." By zeugma, a)nepi/strofos [is used] of [Hades] going after his enemies, but he has respect and pays attention. Or [Orestes] not coming back.[1] Hence also the [phrase] "turning-round year."[2]

[1] Sophocles, Electra 182-4 (web address 1), with garbled scholion. The idea is that the adjective is used in different senses of Hades and of Orestes.
[2] Homer, Iliad 2.295 (web address 2), which supplies the present headword.
