    Αντιγράφω από τον σύνδεσμο:
    "Μολύβι": εκτός των άλλων σημαίνει και "σφαίρα, βλήμα όπλου".
    "Μπάλα": θυμάμαι ότι την έχω ακούσει να σημαίνει "μέτωπο". (Πάει όμως πολύς καιρός από τότε)
    Υποθέτω λοιπόν ότι "μολύβι στην μπάλα" σημαίνει "σφαίρα στο μέτωπο".

    Perseas, we just had a thread explaining how to use proper Greek quotation marks, stop contributing to the problem.

    Ancolie, where did you find this?

    One explanation is that "μπάλα" means "head", although I've never heared of this. The other is that "bala" means the type projectile (bullet) or the ammunition. In this case may mean a single massive lead bullet, ususually used for large game, as opposed to the small shot (beads) used for hunting small animals. The w. "bala" as "bullet" or "shell" is preserved in some parts of Greece, e.g. in Crete "balothia" (a shot).
