"[[Like] barley-fed] mules on account of laziness and satiety."[1]
The linguists [write] kriqiw/sais ["grain-fed"]; for akostai is what they call krithai and take [the word] from akos, "cure"; that is, rest from hunger and thirst. But Aristonicus [sc. construes it as] those who are in distress [achos]. At any rate he cites: "[as the barley-fed horse] might break his halter and run stamping over the plain."[2] But some [sc. understand it as] full to the brim.
