[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.
