30 Afool , used of both sexes but chiefly of men (in Laws ii
44 z - 46.4 oinmit `awoman fool'is distinguished from on
`a man fool', but the text is uncertain; see on); apparently a
natural or half-witted person who might nevertheless possess
considerable shrewdness and intuition or even occasionally
35inspiration. Theóinmitseems to have been sometimes
employed as a professional jester or entertainer; in the list
of the 26 recognized social grades or callings in Laws iv 344.1
follg. theóinmitstands twenty-second in order. In later lit.
the word denotes in general a simple or foolish person.
