[Meaning] the point of the ear.[1]
And all [kinds of] points:[2] also of the liver.[3]
But properly [it means] the bottom part of the ears. Also the pod of a chickpea or fava bean. And in diviners' lore [it is] a certain sign in the liver.[4] From this [comes] λώβη ["mutilation"], [meaning] the penalty of [cutting off] the ears, [spelled] with an omega.[5]
Also [sc. attested is] λωβός ['one who has been mutilated'], [meaning] the one who has been harmed.

Λοβός: τὸ ἄκρον τοῦ ὠτίου. καὶ τὰ ἄκρα πάντα: καὶ τοῦ ἥπατος. κυρίως δὲ τῶν ὤτων τὸ κάτω. καὶ τὸ ἀγγεῖον ἐρεβίνθου ἢ κυάμου. καὶ ἐν θυτικῇ σημεῖόν τι ἐν τῷ ἥπατι. ἔνθεν Λώβη, ἡ διὰ τῶν ὤτων τιμωρία, διὰ τοῦ ω μεγάλου. καὶ Λωβός, ὁ βεβλαμμένος.
