Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Lounges are what they used to call certain public places in which many people with time to spare would sit. Homer [writes]: "do you not wish to go to a smithy to sleep, or to some lounge?".[1] Kleanthes says that the lounges were set aside for Apollo, and that they were similar to saloons. [He] also [says that] Apollo himself is called, by some, Lounge-guardian.
"Lounges" [are] also poems by Herakleides Pontikos, written in either Phalaecic or Sapphic metre.[3]
