Headword: Athurôton stoma
Adler number: alpha,772
Translated headword: doorless mouth
Vetting Status: high
Thus doorless, not gateless.[1] Aristophanes in Frogs [sc. uses the phrase].[2]
Also [in] Phrynichus.[3] But some write "gateless" when they mean "opened and not having a gate", that is to say not curbed or controlled.[4]
Greek Original:
Athurôton stoma: houtôs athurôton, ouk apulôton. Aristophanês en Batrachois. kai Phrunichos. hoi de graphontes apulôton anti tou êneôigmenon kai pulên mê echon, toutesti mê chalinagôgoumenon mêde kratoumenon.
See already alpha 358, and again alpha 3720.
[1] i.e. '"doorless" is correct'.
[2] See n.4 below.
[3] Once registered as a fragment of Ph. the comic poet (fr. 82 Kock) but nowadays, as in Adler, attributed to Ph. Arabius, Praeparatio sophistica (fr.10a de Borries).
[4] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Frogs 838 (where the mss offer both "gateless" and "doorless"; the most recent editor, K.J. Dover, prints the latter.)
