ποικιλῳδὸς singing ποικίλα, subtleties, αἰνίγματα: cp. Plat. Sym. 182a “ὁ περὶ τὸν ἔρωτα νόμος ἐν μὲν ταῖς ἄλλαις πόλεσι νοῆσαι ῥᾴδιος: ἁπλῶς γὰρ ὤρισται: ὁ δὲ ἐνθάδε καὶ ἐν Λακεδαίμονι ποικίλος.” Hdt. 7.3 “πρόμαντις δὲ ἡ χρέουσα, κατάπερ ἐν Δελφοῖσι, καὶ οὐδὲν ποικιλώτερον,” “the chief prophetess is she who gives the oracles, as at Delphi, and in no wise of darker speech.”
