Headword: Βουφόνια
Adler number: beta,474
Translated headword: Bouphonia, Ox-slaying
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A very ancient festival among [the] Athenians. For in the Diipolieia[1] they say that an ox ate a round cake that was prepared for the sacrifice, but a certain Thaulôn, as it stands, slew the ox with an axe, as Androtion also says.[2]
Greek Original:
Βουφόνια: ἑορτὴ παρὰ Ἀθηναίοις πάνυ ἀρχαία. ἐν γὰρ τοῖς Διϊπολείοις φασὶ τὸν βοῦν τὸ πόπανον φαγεῖν τὸ παρεσκευασμένον εἰς τὴν θυσίαν, Θαύλωνα δέ τινα, ὡς εἶχε, τῷ πελέκει ἀποκτεῖναι τὸν βοῦν, ὡς καὶ Ἀνδροτίων φησί.
Notes:
From the scholia to Aristophanes, Clouds 985, where the genitive case of the headword occurs; and similar material in other lexica. See also beta 475.
