Vetting Status: high
"O oaken Acharnian, o unfeeling."[1] For the Acharnians used to be ridiculed in comedy as being wild and harsh.[2] In the case of the Potamians, it was for readily accepting the improperly-inscribed [sc. into membership]; and Thymaitadai and Prospaltians because they were litigious.[3]
Greek Original:
Dracharneu: druine Acharneu, anaisthête. ekômôidounto gar hoi Acharneis hôs agrioi kai sklêroi. potamioi de, hôs rhaidiôs dechomenoi tous parengraphous. thumoitadai kai prospaltioi, hôs dikastikoi.
Likewise in Photius, Lexicon delta762 (where Theodoridis emends the headword to *Druaxarneu=).
[1] A fragment of Attic comedy (Adespota fr. 75 Kock, now 498 K.-A.).
[2] Quoted at alpha 359, end; also at sigma 639.
[3] Oddly, the major deme Acharnai (D. Whitehead, The Demes of Attica (Princeton 1986) index s.v.) does not have its own Suda entry, but for Potamos see pi 2122 and pi 2124; for Thymaitadai see theta 554; and for Prospalta see pi 2780.
