Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A statue of [the goddess] Hekate.[1] And [there is] a saying, 'Theagenes' Hekateion', of which he used to learn when he went away anywhere.[2] [It was he] who used to be called Smoke. There were 2 other Theagenes-es: the one who wrote about Homer and the one satirized for being a softy.[3]
Greek Original:
Ἑκάτειον: Ἑκάτης ἄγαλμα. καὶ παροιμία, Θεαγένους Ἑκάτειον: οὗ ἐπυνθάνετο πανταχοῦ ἀπιών. ὃς Καπνὸς ἐκαλεῖτο. ἦσαν δὲ Θεα- γένεις ἄλλοι β#: ὁ περὶ Ὁμήρου γράψας καὶ ὁ ἐπὶ μαλακίᾳ διαβεβλημένος.
Notes:
[1] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Wasps 804 (web address 1), where the headword occurs. For Hekate cf. epsilon 363, epsilon 364, epsilon 365.
[2] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Lysistrata 63-4 (web address 2), where, as transmitted, the headword occurs -- though some modern editions follow van Leeuwen's emendation to akateion (a small boat: alpha 819). Consult the note in Henderson ad loc., where inter alia the spelling Theogenes is preferred.
[3] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Birds 822 (web address 3); cf. theta 80, theta 81, upsilon 79.
