Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 853 (web address 1), with scholion; cf. pi 2015.
The speaker, a "sycophant" (informer/blackmailer; cf. generally sigma 1330), is referring to Wealth, whose blindness is denying him his source of income.
For the adjective polufo/ros in the transferred sense required here (drawn from the need to dilute wine with water) see LSJ s.v. II.
