Headword: Καθαγίσω

Greek Original:

Same or similar entry in other lexica. From the scholia to Aristophanes, Lysistrata 238, where the headword (an aorist subjunctive occurs) occurs: Lysistrata herself says 'let me make this [goblet] hagios'.
For the concept of hagios, suggesting 'an attitude and feeling of looking upward in awe and veneration', see generally Walter Burkert, Greek Religion (Oxford [Blackwell] 1985) 270-1. The scholiast's glosses draw attention to the fact that a regular way of making an offering hagios was to burn it up (holocaust); here the joke comes with Lysistrata offering to drain it dry.
