A divinity, worshipped among Corinthians, presider over the debauched.
"This is the source of those Kleistheneses and Timarchoses and all those who for the sake of money make their youth accessible and those not motivated by money but by something else, and those motivated by nothing at all but [sc. acting] out of accursed pleasure. All at once the effeminate are all daintily-coiffed."
Greek Original:
Κότυς: δαίμων, παρὰ Κορινθίοις τιμώμενος, ἔφορος τῶν αἰσχρῶν. ὅθεν οἱ Κλεισθέναι καὶ Τίμαρχοι καὶ πάντες οἱ πρὸς ἀργύριον τὴν ὥραν διατιθέμενοι καὶ οἱ μὴ πρὸς ἀργύριον δέ, ἀλλὰ πρὸς ἄλλο τι, καὶ οἱ μὴ πρὸς μηδὲν ὁτιοῦν, ἀλλὰ διὰ τὴν ἐξάγιστον ἡδονήν. καθάπαξ οἱ θηλυδρίαι τριχῶν πλάσται πάντες εἰσίν.
