[Meaning] of the locusts. [So called] because they have four wings.[1] And "of chicks" is said by some for "of roosters", in the Boeotian dialect.[2]

[1] The headword is corrupted from tetrapterulli/dwn, "of the little four-winged ones" (tau 401), in Aristophanes, Acharnians 871; see further, next note.
[2] On o)rtali/xwn see omicron 638. The association with Boeotian is made in the scholia to Aristophanes, Acharnians 871 (from which the entire entry is taken), because the verse is spoken by a Theban.
