One who does not turn back is called ἀπερίτροπος ["not turning around"]. "For neither the child of Agamemnon [is] not turning back nor the god who rules beside Acheron." By zeugma, ἀνεπίστροφος [is used] of [Hades] going after his enemies, but he has respect and pays attention. Or [Orestes] not coming back.[1] Hence also the [phrase] "turning-round year."[2]
Greek Original:
Περιτροπέων: ἀπερίτροπος λέγεται ὁ ἀνεπίστροφος. οὔτε γὰρ Ἀγαμεμνονίδης παῖς ἀνεπίτροπος οὔθ' ὁ παρὰ τὸν Ἀχέροντα θεὸς ἀνάσσων. ἀπὸ κοινοῦ τὸ ἀνεπίστροφος τοῦ τοὺς ἐχθροὺς μετελθεῖν, ἀλλ' ἔχει ἐπιστροφὴν καὶ ἐπιμέλειαν ποιεῖται. ἢ ἀνεπέλευστος: ἔνθεν καὶ τὸ περιτροπέων ἐνιαυτός.
