Vetting Status: high
Meaning one who brings me many evils at one time; or a wily one. Aristophanes [sc. writes this].
Greek Original:
Οὕτω πολυφόρῳ συγκέκραμαι δαίμονι: ἀντὶ τοῦ πολλά μοι κακὰ ὑφ' ἕνα καιρὸν φέροντι: ἢ ποικίλῳ. Ἀριστοφάνης.
Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 853 (web address 1), with scholion; cf. pi 2015.
The speaker, a "sycophant" (informer/blackmailer; cf. generally sigma 1330), is referring to Wealth, whose blindness is denying him his source of income.
For the adjective πολυφόρος in the transferred sense required here (drawn from the need to dilute wine with water) see LSJ s.v. II.
