ἄνολβον, of folly, as in Ant. 1026（“οὐκ”) “ἄβουλος οὐδ᾽ ἄνολβος”: ib. 1265 “ὤμοι ἐμῶν ἄνολβα βουλευμάτων”. Cp. 1290 “δύστηνε”: O.T. 888 “δυσπότμου χάριν χλιδᾶς” (i.e., miserably perverse): Dem. or. 3 § 21 “οὐ γὰρ οὕτως ἄφρων οὐδ᾽ ἀτυχής εἰμι ἐγώ, ὥστ᾽ ἀπεχθάνεσθαι βούλεσθαι.” παρών here serves merely to make the picture a little more vivid; he thus warned the man to his face. Cp. 338.
