Headword: *)ap' a)krofusi/wn lo/gous e)ndeiknu/nai
Adler number: alpha,2874
Translated headword: to show words from bellows
Vetting Status: high
That is novel and newly-made [words]. Aristophanes [writes]: "to show words both refined and witty all from bellows and from frameworks."[1] For by "from bellows" he is speaking of ones freshly made and as if from the fire,[2] while "from frameworks" suggests what is freshly formed and structured. For a framework [kinnabos] [is] the form at which modellers and painters look and set up when moulding and painting. Many use [this word].[3]

Phrynichus, Praeparatio sophistica fr. 236. Anticipated at alpha 1022, but this is the full entry.
[1] Aristophanes fr. 699 Kock (now 719 K.-A.) -- imperfectly quoted here: for the final kai\ tw=n a)po\ kinnabeuma/twn read ka)po\ kanabeuma/twn.
[2] cf. the modern "words from the anvil".
[3] See again at kappa 1624 and (esp.) kappa 1625. The authentic spelling of the word appears to be kanabos (or kannabos: see LSJ s.v.).
