Adler number: alpha,4540
Translated headword: you are eating the cheese (with) baskets and all
Vetting Status: high
[It is] natural to Athenians to say [this] without the preposition syn ["with"]: arms and all, baskets and all.
Greek Original:
*au)toi=s tala/rois e)sqi/eis to\n turo/n: su/ntrofon *)aqhnai/ois a)/neu th=s su\n proqe/sews le/gein, au)toi=s o(/plois, au)toi=s tala/rois.
The headword phrase loosely quotes (and abridges) Aristophanes, Frogs 559-560 (web address 1 below), and the gloss is from the scholia there.
For the idiom see already alpha 4466, and cf. alpha 4539.
