Headword: Bursaietos
Adler number: beta,593
Translated headword: hide-eagle
Vetting Status: high
[Referring to] Kleon. The expression is composed of "hide" [bursa] and "eagle" [aietos]. Simultaneously mocking Kleon for being a hide-tanner and for being a thief and a grabber of public goods. For the eagle is a creature that grabs things.[1]
skytodepsês ["leather-tanner"] [is] Attic, but bursodepsês ["hide-tanner"] Asianic.[2]
Or 'Paphlagonian hide-man.' It signifies the unpleasant smell that comes from soaking skins and leaving them in chemicals for many days so that they can take [them] apart, from the odor of the water and of the rotting skins. He thus lampoons him as being foul-smelling, and especially singles out Kleon's cheapness, on the foundation of which fortune he came to be pre-eminent among the Athenians.[3]
Carthage is also called Africa [and] Bursa: see also under Africanus.[4]
