A proverb.
Greek Original:
*(/elkei moixo\s ei)s moixo/n: paroimi/a.
So the transmitted text, which would require a meaning something like the pot calling the kettle black. But cf. mu 1360 (and Zenobius 4.67), which leave little doubt that it should be "a seducer drags [sc. women] into a corner" (ei)s muxo/n; cf. generally mu 1359 for the need to avoid confusion between these two words).
