Greek display:    

Headword: *pante/leian
Adler number: pi,229
Translated headword: consummation, perfection
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning something] complete.
Greek Original:
*pante/leian: o(lo/klhron.
Notes:
The headword is found in a range of contexts where it bears the general senses translated above; it was also the Pythagoreans' special name for the number 10; see LSJ s.v.
Here it is in the accusative case (with the same glossing in other lexica; references at Photius pi171 Theodoridis), so evidently quoted from somewhere. There are possibilities in e.g. Polybius, Plutarch and Philo Judaeus, and note also the phrase th\n pante/leian tw=n a)gaqw=n in a fragment of Diotimus of Tyre (fr. 2 D-K) quoted by Clement of Alexandria.
