Adler number: epsilon,132
Translated headword: have yourself rolled out
Vetting Status: high
"If you don't have leisure to come out, have yourself rolled out."[1] That is, have yourself wheeled out. And ekkyklema[2] is the name for a wooden [theatrical] machine, which had wheels. [This was] the device which, when it was turned around, used to display to the spectators the things which appeared [to be] inside, as if they were being done in the house. So he is saying: and [by doing this] you would become visible.

From the scholia to Aristophanes, Acharnians 408 (web address 1), where the headword (an aorist passive imperative, second person singular) occurs -- but as e)kkuklh/qht'. The Suda's e)gkuklh/qhti (twice) would have to be from e)gkukle/omai, which means "roll or rotate in the sockets" (LSJ s.v.). However, the entry is clearly referring to the theatrical device the e)kku/klhma, and the verb in question is the passive of e)kkukle/w.
[1] These words are presented as if delivered by a single character, bur wrongly. In the original, Euripides utters the phrase a)ll' ou) sxolh/ and Dikaiopolis retorts with a)ll' e)kkuklh/qht'.
[2] *)ekku/klhma is the standard spelling; the variant given here, e)gku/klhma, is unknown to LSJ; cf. epsilon 699.
