Headword: *xoriko/s
Adler number: chi,403
Translated headword: chorikos, choricus, chorus-leader
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] he who leads out the chorus.
Such a one was Agathon, who used to create dramatic songs and act them out himself; therefore they are also called "choral" [songs].[1]
Greek Original:
*xoriko/s: o( tou= xorou= e)ca/rxwn. toiou=tos h)=n *)aga/qwn, o(\s u(pokritika\ me/lh e)poi/ei kai\ au)to\s u(pokri/netai: dio\ kai\ xorika\ le/gei.
[1] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Thesmophorizusae 101, where Agathon (alpha 124) appears. For le/gei, Adler reports that ms F (= Laurentianus 55.1) has le/getai; this should probably be preferred as it is also the reading in mu 1445.
