Headword: Κλεισθένης
Adler number: kappa,1757
Translated headword: Kleisthenes, Clisthenes
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Sophocles[1] [writes]: "and how might it become a well-ordered polis, where a god born as a woman stands in full body armour -- and Kleisthenes [stands] with a weaver's shuttle?"[2] For Kleisthenes was attacked as effeminate.[3]
Greek Original:
Κλεισθένης: Σοφοκλῆς: καὶ πῶς ἂν ἔτι γένοιτ' εὔτακτος πόλις, ὅπου θεὸς γυνὴ γεγονυῖα πανοπλίαν ἕστηκ' ἔχων, Κλεισθένης δὲ κερκίδα; ὡς γυναικώδης γὰρ διεβέβλητο Κλεισθένης.
Notes:
[1] A mistake for 'Aristophanes': see next note
[2] Aristophanes, Birds 827-829: Athena in male garb is contrasted with Kleisthenes [see next note] in an effeminate occupation.
[3] On this Kleisthenes see also kappa 1756, kappa 1758, theta 381, kappa 2171, pi 3070, epsilon 2021, beta 288, sigma 1271, sigma 1186, omicron 978. Kleisthenes son of Sibyrtios was a theoros, and a recurring butt of Aristophanes' jokes (Acharnians 117, Clouds 354, Thesmophoriazusae 574). He is to be contrasted with the reformer who introduced democracy to Athens in 508 BCE. Consult web address 1.
