"And burning to show that god does not care about the Athenians, he went to the megaron and thrust himself in; there of course only the hierophant was permitted to go, according to the rule of the rite, but for him it was not allowed. But when he had dared this audacity, a shuddering overcame him and he fell sick with a lengthy disease."[2]

[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica, beginning with Hesychius iota329. The headword is taken to be quoted from Gregory of Nazianzus, Orations 5.30; cf. the scholia there. See also already iota 196.
[2] Part of Aelian fr. 10 Hercher (de dadoucho Epicuri praeceptis corrupto), now fr. 10i Domingo-Forasté -- but instead of tw=n *aqhnai/wn read tw=n a)nqrwpei/wn: "does not care about human affairs". See also alpha 3499, epsilon 3604, mu 381, tau 477, phi 713. On the megaron see G.E. Mylonas, Eleusis and the Eleusinian Mysteries (Princeton 1962) 87: "in the Historic era the holy of holies of the temple of Eleusis was sometimes called Megaron and more often Anaktoron" [cf. alpha 1924].
