Greek Original:
Κολαβρισθείη: χλευασθείη, ἐκτιναχθείη, ἀτιμασθείη. κόλαβρος γὰρ ὁ μικρὸς χοῖρος. ἀντὶ τοῦ οὐδενὸς λόγου ἄξιος νομισθείη.
The headword is aorist passive optative of κολαβρίζω , third person singular. It must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps, in foreshortened form, from the Septuagint: see final note below.
