Headword: Kleisthenous akratesteros
Adler number: kappa,1758
Translated headword: weaker than Kleisthenes; weaker than Clisthenes
Vetting Status: high
This man was attacked for (sc. homosexual) debauchery, and used to act the woman. And Cratinus [says]: "You constantly act the fool" -- depicting him in an episode -- "Cleisthenes will be ridiculous playing dice".
Greek Original:
Kleisthenous akratesteros: houtos epi kinaidiai diebeblêto kai egunaikizeto. kai Kratinos: lêreis echôn: graphôn auton en epeisodiôi: geloios estai Kleisthenês kubeuôn.
From the scholia to Aristophanes, Clouds 355, where this individual is mentioned. (The actual headword phrase, however, occurs neither in that passage nor in the scholion and is otherwise unattested.)
The Cratinus passage is fr. 195 Kock = 208 K.-A. (but for its first part see also Aristophanes, Frogs 512).
The feminine characteristics of this man are the butt of numerous jokes in Aristophanes. See also (e.g.) beta 288, epsilon 2021, kappa 1756, pi 3070.
