Headword: *)ana/statoi
Adler number: alpha,2082
Translated headword: anastatoi
Vetting Status: high
A type of flat-cake. These used to be made for the Arrêphoroi themselves.[1] Certain flat-cakes called charisioi ["thank-offering cakes"] also used to be spoken of. These were mixed and made from the leftovers, and craftsmen [still?] shape them. Aristophanes in Banqueters [writes]: "I will send some thank-offering cakes in the evenings."[2] The amphiphôntes are made in the month of Mounychion on the sixteenth, and they are brought into the shrine of Artemis Mounychia.[3] As to why their name is amphiphôntes,[4] some [say that it is] because they are made at the time when the sun and the moon appear early over the earth; but Apollodorus [says that it is] because they fasten bundles of firewood to them when bringing them. But a phthoïs are[sic!] pastries, which they used to sacrifice to the gods with the intestines.[5] Moon-cakes [selênai] are wide pastries, circular; and pelanoi [are] pastries for the gods; but popana ["round-cakes"] [are different again]; and in Erechtheus Euripides called moon-cakes pelanoi: "and tell me, for you are sending from home a great pelanos, of these moon-cakes of a first fiery sprouting."[6] Besides six mooncakes they used to dress a "seventh ox", which had horns replicating the early moon. Accordingly they would sacrifice this ox in addition to four round-cakes and call it "fifth ox". But rather, "seventh ox" in addition to the six [mooncakes]. In reference to those who are unfeeling.[7]
