Headword: Ἄμητα
Adler number: alpha,1581
Translated headword: milk-cake
Vetting Status: high
Milk-cake,[1] a type of cake mixed with milk. Aristophanes in Wealth [writes]: "having sent back this milk-cake for us."[2] Not only because he did not take the gifts; he also sent home for another flat-cake for me beforehand. As if to say that I should no longer tread there. So ἄμης [is] the cake, not the oven.[3]
Greek Original:
Ἄμητα: ἄμης, εἶδος πλακοῦντος γαλακτώδους. Ἀριστοφάνης Πλούτῳ: ἄμητα προσέπεμψας ἡμῖν τουτονί. οὐ μόνον ὅτι οὐκ ἐδέ- ξατο τὰ δῶρα, ἀλλὰ καὶ οἴκοθεν ἔπεμψέ μοι ἄλλο πλακούντιον προντούλων. ὡς ἂν λέγων, μηκέτι πατῆσαι ἐκεῖ με. ἄμης οὖν ὁ πλακοῦς, οὐχ ὁ ἰπνός.
[1] The headword itself is in the accusative case (from the Aristophanic phrase about to be quoted); this is the nominative.
[2] An approximation of Aristophanes, Wealth [Plutus] 999 (web address 1). What follows here is from the scholia there (reading πρὸ τούτων with ms F). See again at pi 2532.
[3] Either, according to LSJ s.v. (but only "cake" as early as this).
