Headword: *pallhniko\n ble/pein
Adler number: pi,80
Translated headword: to look Pallene-ish
Vetting Status: high
Meaning noble. Pallene [is] a deme of Attica,[1] where Peisistratos, when seeking to become tyrant, fought a war against the Athenians who did not want him to. "To look Pallene-ish" is a way of saying to behave cruelly and harshly towards the enemy, as once [happened] towards Peisistratos the tyrant, when we fought the battle in Pallene. Alternatively Ballene, given the close relationship between b and p; from throwing [ba/llein] stones. For it is a way of saying that one should find the enemy and stone him.

From the scholia to Aristophanes, Acharnians 234, where the variants *ballhna/de (preferred by most editors, e.g. web address 1) and *pallhna/de -- but not the Suda's *pallhniko/n -- are transmitted.
