Abstract: The spectrum of the perturbed polyharmonic operator $ H = (-\Delta)^l + V$ in $ \textsf{L}^2(\mathbb{R}^d)$ with a limit-periodic potential $ V$ is studied. It is shown that if $ V$ is periodic in one direction in $ \mathbb{R}^d$ and $ 8l > d+3$, $ d \not = 1 ({\mathrm{{mod}}}4)$, then the spectrum of $ H$ contains a semiaxis. The proof is based on the properties of periodic operators.
