Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] that which is rough.
Greek Original:

= Eudemus 170.20 (Niese). Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon; and there are similar ones elsewhere, including the scholia to Homer, Iliad 13.17 (where the genitive paipalo/entos occurs).
Outside lexicography this form of the word, nominative singular masculine, is attested only at Homeric Hymn to Apollo 39 (where it refers to Mimas, mu 1074); however, other forms, particularly the accusative singular feminine, paipalo/essan, and genitive singular feminine paipaloe/sshs, occur frequently in Homeric poetry as formulaic epithets for various geographical features (e.g Odyssey 3.170, 11.480).
For related words see pi 886 (which includes the present glossing term), pi 887, pi 888, pi 890.
