[Meaning] the body-part [of that name].[1]

Χεῖλος: τὸ μέρος τοῦ σώματος. καὶ ἐγένετο πᾶσα ἡ γῆ χεῖλος ἕν. περὶ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν λέγει.
Notes:
[1] Likewise, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (202).
[2] From pi 779: Genesis 11:1 LXX. The reference to sins must belong to an allegorical interpretation, as this quotation is part of a pleonastic passage describing a primeval common language (as an introduction to the account of the tower of Babel).
