Adler number: pi,827
Translated headword: burbling [things]

[Meaning] resounding [ones], boiling-up [ones].[1]
"The man is burbling",[2] [meaning] is boiling, is bothered. It is created from the [verb] pafla/zein ['to burble']. 'To burble' is for someone to restrain himself and cut himself off while speaking. That is what Kleon was like; or to be disturbed; for properly 'to burble' signifies the sounding of the sea when there are waves on it.

[1] = Synagoge; Lexica Segueriana 334.30; Photius, Lexicon pi499 Theodoridis; ultimately from commentary on Homer, Iliad 13.798, where the headword (present active participle, nominative plural neuter) appears; cf. scholia ad loc. and Hesychius pi1160.
[2] Aristophanes, Knights 919, with glosses and further comments from the scholia; cf. Hesychius pi1159. The word glossed here is the present indicative active, third person singular, of the verb. For Kleon see generally kappa 1731 (and pi 826).
