Adler number: alpha,1453
Translated headword: barley-meal-dealers
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Aristophanes [writes]: "if he shuts his door, [...] the barley-meal-dealers should provide three quarts as dinner to all the poor - or else long regret it."[1]
Greek Original:
Ἀλφιταμοιβούς: Ἀριστοφάνης: ἢν δ' ἀποκλίνῃ τὴν θύραν, τοὺς ἀλφιταμοιβοὺς τοῖς ἀπόροις τρεῖς χοίνικας δεῖπνον παρέχειν ἅπασιν ἢ κλαίειν μακρά.
Notes:
The headword, in the accusative plural, is presumably extracted from the quotation given. For barley-meal cf. alpha 1451, alpha 1452, alpha 1454, alpha 1455, alpha 1456.
