Headword: Χωλός
Adler number: chi,425
Translated headword: crippled, lame
Vetting Status: high
[It is applied] both to a foot and to a hand. Eupolis [writes]: "because you [are] really crippled in the hand."[1] And the Attic[-speakers use the word] κυλλοί ["deformed"] for the feet and hands alike.[2]
Also [sc. attested is] χωλοποιός ["crippler"]. Aristophanes [writes]: "no indeed, not before I should expose this crippler clearly for the bold-faced one he is."[3]
But [sc. differently-accented] Χῶλος [is] a proper name.[4]
Greek Original:
Χωλός: καὶ ἐπὶ ποδὸς καὶ ἐπὶ χειρός. Εὔπολις: ὅτι χωλὸς τὴν χεῖρα σὺ σφόδρα. καὶ κυλλοὺς οἱ Ἀττικοὶ ἐπὶ ποδῶν καὶ χειρῶν ὁμοίως. καὶ Χωλοποιός. Ἀριστοφάνης: οὐ δῆτα, πρίν γ' ἂν τοῦτον ἀποφήνω σαφῶς τὸν χωλοποιόν, οἷος ὢν θρασύνεται. Χῶλος δὲ ὄνομα κύριον.
