Translation:
'Head-butting' is the term for the battle with horns that goes on among insensate animals. Or the collisions of rams. Aristophanes [writes]: "but if he slips out in this way, he will head-butt against my leg." [Meaning] he would fight against his leg. Or he will fall, if he were to slip away, or flee.
Greek Original:
Κυρηβάσει: κυρηβασία λέγεται ἡ διὰ κεράτων μάχη, ἥπερ ἐν τοῖς ἀλόγοις ζῴοις γίνεται. ἢ αἱ πλήξεις τῶν τράγων. Ἀριστοφάνης: εἰ δ' ἐκκλίνει γε δευρί, πρὸς σκέλος κυρηβάσει. ἂν πρὸς τὸ σκέλος μαχεῖται. ἢ διαπεσεῖται, ἐὰν ὑποσταλῇ, ἢ φύγῃ.
