The first and principal part of this entry derives from the scholia to Aristophanes, Acharnians 245, where the accusative case of the headword noun occurs (web address 1); cf. Photius s.v. For the Suda's nominative see also Phrynichus, Hesychius (epsilon6627, citing another, non-extant passage of Aristophanes) and Etymologicum Magnum 385.7.
[1] (For 'gruel' see alpha 708.) This phrase comes from the scholia on Aristophanes, Frogs 506, where soups are mentioned.
[2] omicroniota 117.
[3] epsilon 3326.
[4] Greek Anthology 6.305.6 (= 6.306.2); also in tau 74. This epigram, attributed to Leonidas of Tarentum, is a fictional dedication of cooking tools by a glutton named Dorieus; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 125), (vol. II, 364-366), and further excerpts from this epigram at kappa 1871 and tau 799. As Gow and Page note (vol. II, 364), it is unclear whether Dorieus is an actual poet that the Tarentine is satirizing or, since the name 'Dorieus' is fairly common, that Leonidas chose that name so as to gesture at gluttons in general.
