The color.[1]
"A bloom produced on the face, such as no moist and delicate and flourishing meadow can bring forth with the dew of spring, a beautiful blush and a very sweet smile."[2]
"But he acts impudently and does not change his color from the usual."[3]
For [sc. this means] not to blush at what is said. Since he does not change his color, he does not blush.[4]
Greek Original:
Ἐρύθημα: τὸ χρῶμα. ἄνθος προσώπῳ ἐπιφυόμενον, οἷον οὐδὲ εἷς λειμὼν νοτερός τε καὶ ἁβρὸς καὶ εὐθαλὴς τεκεῖν ὑπὸ δρόσῳ ἐαρινῇ οἶδεν, ἐρύθημά τε ὡραῖον καὶ μειδίαμα ἥδιστον. ὁ δὲ προσαναιδεύεται κοὐ μεθίστησι τοῦ χρώματος τοῦ παρεστηκότος. τὸ γὰρ μὴ ἐρυθριᾶν ἐπὶ τοῖς εἰρημένοις. ἐπεὶ οὐ μεταβάλλει τὸ χρῶμα, οὐκ ἐρυθριᾷ.

[3] Aristophanes, Knights 398-9, where the text reads ὡς δὲ πρὸς πᾶν ἀναιδεύεται (web address 1). The 'he' is Kleon (kappa 1731).
