Headword: *)apepuda/risa
Adler number: alpha,3033
Translated headword: I kicked up a mothon [and] cried cuckoo
Vetting Status: high
Meaning I farted. A mothon [is] a sort of vulgar dance. So "I cried cuckoo" [means] I danced the cordax.[1]
Greek Original:
*)apepuda/risa [*)aristofa/nhs] mo/qwna perieko/kkusa: a)nti\ tou= a)pe/pardon. mo/qwn de\ ei)=dos o)rxh/sews fortikh=s. perieko/kkusa ou)=n ko/rdaka w)rxhsa/mhn.
The headword phrase -- into which the Suda parenthetically inserts the name 'Aristophanes', omitted here -- is Aristophanes, Knights 697 (web address 1 below). The gloss is from the scholia there.
[1] For the kordax see kappa 2071; for the mothon, mu 1187; and cf. also pi 1115.
