Translated headword: smelling of the Kronia, smelling of the Cronia
Vetting Status: high
Aristophanes in Clouds [writes]: "and how, o you fool, smelling of the Kronia?"[1] That is, being full of antiquity and folly. Either, indeed, because a certain ancient festival was held in honor of Kronos, or because they used to call all ancient and guileless things Kronia. Also [sc. attested is] Kronous, [meaning] dotards.[2]
Greek Original:
Kroniôn ozôn: Aristophanês Nephelais: kai pôs, ô môre su, Kroniôn ozôn; toutestin archaïsmou gemôn kai môrias. êtoi hoti heortê tis palaia êgeto tôi Kronôi, ê hoti ta palaia panta kai euêthê Kronia ekaloun. kai Kronous, tous lêrous.
cf. kappa 2466. LSJ s.v. *kro/nios gloss *kroni/wn o)/zwn as "smelling of musty antiquity."
[1] Aristophanes, Clouds 398 (web address 1), with comment from the scholia there.
[2] Kronous is masculine accusative plural, and therefore quoted not from line 929 of the play but from elsewhere -- probably Wasps 1480 (web address 2); cf. the scholia there. See generally LSJ s.v. *kro/nos, II, and cf. s.v. *krono/lhros.
