The Diipoleia is a certain festival at Athens.[1]
"Diipoleia-like and full of cicadas".[2] [The] Diipoleia [is also] called the Diasia.[3] The festival was so called because there was a sacifice to Zeus Polieus.[4]
Greek Original:
*diipo/leia: e(orth/ tis *)aqh/nhsi ta\ *diipo/leia. kai\ *diipoleiw/dh kai\ tetti/gwn a)na/mesta. *diipo/leia, ta\ lego/mena *dia/sia. e(orth\ ou(/tws e)le/geto, dio/ti tw=| *poliei= *dii\ e)qu/eto.
[1] (The headword -- already at delta 1021 -- is translated here as singular, though in Greek it is (neuter) plural.) From Harpokration s.v., citing Antiphon 6 On the choreutes. The headword does not appear in the transmitted text of that speech, but Scheibe's orthodox emendation conjures it in ch.39 there.
[2] Aristophanes, Clouds 984 (web address 1), also at kappa 1500.
[3] Untrue: they were two different festivals, in different months.
[4] Zeus of the City. (NB "Zeus" becomes "Dii" in the dative case.)
