Headword: Χόλον
Adler number: chi,385
Translated headword: gall
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] wrath.[1]
But [it means] temporary [wrath].[2] [So called] from the [verb] χεῖσθαι ["to contain; to pour, heap up"].[3]
Greek Original:
Χόλον: ὀργήν. ἀλλὰ πρόσκαιρον. παρὰ τὸ χεῖσθαι.
cf. generally chi 387.
[1] = Rhetoricae Lexeis 220; Synagoge chi95. Perhaps from the scholia to Homer, where the headword often appears (as here) in the accusative singular, e.g. Iliad 1.283 (web address 1). See also ps.-Herodian 152, ps.-Zonaras 1856, and Hesychius chi617 (nominative case).
[2] See scholia to Homer, Odyssey 2.315; Porphyrius, Quaestiones Homericae 82.19.
[3] The word χεῖσθαι is either the present middle/passive infinitive of χέω ("pour, heap up") or that of χάω , a later Greek equivalent of χωρέω used elsewhere in the Suda (cf. chi 224). See also Etymologicum Magnum 813.30. (Either way, the etymology is unconvincing.)
