and [sc. also attested is] relish-eater: [meaning a] glutton, [someone] consuming relishes.
Philoxenos the son of Leukadios was a relish-eater, and from him the Philoxenian flat-cakes [sc. got their name]. To such a degree was Philoxenos a relish-eater that in public, in the baths, he accustomed his hand to heat by plunging it into hot water and gargled his throat with hot water so that heat made him hard to shift. Also he persuaded the cooks to serve him very hot food. Similar stories are told about Archytas.[1] And Crobylus says: "myself, against these excessively hot [foodstuffs] I am holding dactyls veritably Idaean (meaning chilly), and I take pleasure in giving my throat a vapour-bath with [sc. hot] slices of meat".
