Headword: *frourh/seis e)n *naupa/ktw|
Adler number: phi,742
Translated headword: you will serve in the Naupaktos garrison
Vetting Status: high
Given that those garrisoning Naupaktos received low pay yet had to buy high-priced necessities, the proverb [is said] to have arisen.[1] Others, though, [maintain] that after Philip had taken Naupaktos he killed all its garrison-troops, on a resolution of the Achaeans. Theopompus in his second [book] also tells this story.[2]

[1] Naupaktos lies at the mouth of the Corinthian Gulf, on its northern side; see nu 66. In the 450s BCE the Athenians garrisoned it with refugee Messenian helots, and that state of affairs, lasting for half a century, is presumably the context invoked here.
