Headword: Παιπαλόεις
Adler number: pi,889
Translated headword: craggy
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] that which is rough.
Greek Original:
Παιπαλόεις: ὁ τραχύς.
Notes:
= Eudemus 170.20 (Niese). Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon; and there are similar ones elsewhere, including the scholia to Homer, Iliad 13.17 (where the genitive παιπαλόεντος occurs).
Outside lexicography this form of the word, nominative singular masculine, is attested only at Homeric Hymn to Apollo 39 (where it refers to mu 1074); however, other forms, particularly the accusative singular feminine, παιπαλόεσσαν , and genitive singular feminine παιπαλοέσσης , occur frequently in Homeric poetry as formulaic epithets for various geographical features (e.g Odyssey 3.170, 11.480).
For related words see pi 886 (which includes the present glossing term), pi 887, pi 888, pi 890.
