      Dear Michael:

      In LSJ I find that _peteuron_ can also have meaning of "springboard." This
      could be an interpretive paraphrase in a very vivid mannerof the "depths"
      to which one will plunge if he consorts with the wrong type of woman. Her
      house is the "springboard" to Hades.
