"While he was still a child, he threw a stone at and killed his teacher Linus, who had directed blows at him in the classroom; [Heracles] was vexed and unwilling to take orders".

Embalonta: ho de pais ôn eti, ton didaskalon Linon plêgas autôi embalonta en têi didaskaliai dusanaschetêsas kai ouk ethelôn archesthai lithôi balôn apekteinen.
The headword, evidently extracted from the quotation given, is the aorist active participle, masculine accusative singular, of the verb e)mba/llw (cf. epsilon 934, epsilon 936).
As to the quotation itself, Adler suggested Nicolaus of Damascus, and see now Favuzzi (cited under delta 404). Compare also Pausanias 9.29.9: Heracles kills his music teacher Linus the son of Ismenias; cf. lambda 568.
