Notes:
[1] Aristophanes, Wasps 192, with scholion. On the partitive genitive po/rrw te/xnhs, see MacDowell's note, with parallels. His interpretation of the headword itself, however, as 'fully grown' -- i.e. past (par') the state of being a foal (abalos) -- is harder to accept.
[2] An approximation of Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 6.338.
Reference:
Aristophanes, Wasps, edited with introduction and commentary by Douglas M. MacDowell (Oxford 1971)
