Greek Original:
Κολοβόρριν: ὁ μικρόρριν. καὶ Κολοβώματα.
Notes:
[1] The headword noun is quoted from Leviticus 21.18 LXX: "for whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose".
[2] cf. Aristotle, Metaphysics 1024a: "because the part lost by mutilation is never equal to the remainder". Normally the word referred to body parts, as glossed in ps.-Galen, Definitiones Medicae sect 388: "κολόβωμα is the cutting off of a part from somewhere in the body", or Oribasius, Collectiones Medicae 45.25.1, citing Antyllus: "Now a κολόβωμα is the absence of a part or some skin covering the body".
