Headword: Harmatôlia
Adler number: alpha,3971
Translated headword: chariot-driving
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the driving of chariots. "And they have been nibbling at the [sc. calendric] cycle by chariot-driving."[1] Meaning sparing the chariots themselves.
But harmatrochia ["chariot-wheel track"] [is] the furrow of the chariot. There is also hamatrochia.[2]
Greek Original:
Harmatôlia: hê tôn harmatôn hêniocheia. kai tou kuklou paretragon huph' harmatôlias. anti tou pheidomenoi tôn harmatôn autôn. Harmatrochia de hê encharaxis tou harmatos. esti kai Hamatrochia.
[1] Aristophanes, Peace 415 (web address 1 below). The next sentence in the gloss is a scholium to this line (which would have done better to comment on e.g. the pun on a(rmatwli/a and a(martwli/a ("failure") and generally to explain this allusion to recent calendar reforms in Athens). Again at pi 576.
[2] As is implicit here, and already explicit at alpha 1509, the Suda regards these two words as synonyms. This was an oddly common error: see LSJ under a(matroxi/a, which actually meant "driving side by side".
