Headword: *kullou= *ph/ran
Adler number: kappa,2672
Translated headword: Gimp's Pouch
Vetting Status: high
The Pouch [is] a place by Hymettos,[1] in which there is a shrine of Aphrodite and a spring. Women who drink from the spring give birth easily, and those who are infertile become fertile. Kratinos in Softies calls it Kallia,[2] but some call it Gimp's-pouch [*kullouph/ra]. The proverb is applied to those who do violence to nature on purpose.[3]
Aelian [writes]: "the cock standing on the one foot stretched out the one that was maimed and gimpy, as though calling for witnesses and making clear how he had suffered."[4]
