= Synagoge pi517; Photius, Lexicon pi1002 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius pi2720. Taken to come from commentary to Job 38:36 LXX, where the headword adjective in this form -- feminine accusative singular, with te/xnhn or e)pisth/mhn implicit -- appears. The headword is related to the adjective poi/kilos ('variegated/ decorated/changeable/versatile').
