Sorry, no etymologies found.
The article is used with malon, signifying the particular one where all this happened.
Poetry, like philosophy, aims at the universal, but in a different way, which the philosopher indicates as something more (_mallon tha katholon_) which differentiates poetry from history, occupied with the particular (_malon tha kath ekaston_).
The Hebrew word (malon) thus rendered literally signified "a lodging-place for the night."
