Headword: Δραχαρνεῦ
Adler number: delta,1515
Translated headword: o oak-Acharnian
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"O oaken Acharnian, o unfeeling."[1] For the Acharnians used to be ridiculed in comedy as being wild and harsh.[2] In the case of the Potamians, it was for readily accepting the improperly-inscribed [sc. into membership]; and Thymaitadai and Prospaltians because they were litigious.[3]
Greek Original:
Δραχαρνεῦ: δρύινε Ἀχαρνεῦ, ἀναίσθητε. ἐκωμῳδοῦντο γὰρ οἱ Ἀχαρνεῖς ὡς ἄγριοι καὶ σκληροί. ποτάμιοι δέ, ὡς ῥᾳδίως δεχόμενοι τοὺς παρεγγράφους. θυμοιτάδαι καὶ προσπάλτιοι, ὡς δικαστικοί.
Notes:
Likewise in Photius, Lexicon delta762 (where Theodoridis emends the headword to Δρυαχαρνεῦ ).
[1] A fragment of Attic comedy (Adespota fr. 75 Kock, now 498 K.-A.).
[2] Quoted at alpha 359, end; also at sigma 639.
[3] Oddly, the major deme Acharnai (D. Whitehead, The Demes of Attica (Princeton 1986) index s.v.) does not have its own Suda entry, but for Potamos see pi 2122 and pi 2124; for Thymaitadai see theta 554; and for Prospalta see pi 2780.
