Headword: *(ws *puqw/de i)e/nai boulo/menoi *boiwtou\s di/odon ai)tou/meqa
Adler number: omega,242
Translated headword: as wanting to go to Pytho we ask the Boeotians for safe passage
Vetting Status: high
They say that Boeotia lies between Pytho [= Delphi] and Attica, and it is not possible for Athenians to leave for Pytho without passing through Boeotia. When an army goes through, they ask for permission to pass through. So Aristophanes says this: "as we ask the Boeotians for safe passage, likewise when men sacrifice to the gods, unless the gods pay a toll to us [birds], you will not let the smoke of the thigh-pieces pass through the foreign city and the empty space." Meaning you will not carry [it] through, you will not send [it] through.
