Sophocles [writes]: "but you yourself, son, take your namesake, Eurysaces; hold the seven-ox-hided ineffable shield, wielding it with the much-stitched handhold."[1]
And Aristophanes [writes]: "but as for my man, even if he comes back from his unit sometimes, after behandholding himself [...]"[2] [S]he is saying "my husband, buckling himself up, so to speak [...]". Instead of letting go of his shield, as soon as he gets there he goes off into battle.

[1] Sophocles, Ajax 574-6 (already quoted in epsilon 3729), with a)/rrhton ('ineffable') in place of the more likely original reading a)/rrhkton ('unbreakable'). Ajax is addressing his infant son whose name, Eurysaces, means 'broad-shield'.
[2] Aristophanes, Lysistrata 105-6 (here using porpakhsa/menos in place of Aristophanes' homophonous hapax porpakisa/menos, and supplying 'husband'), with scholion; cf. alpha 1118.
