Headword: *parate/tamai
Adler number: pi,461
Translated headword: I have been stretched out
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] I have been swelled out.[1] Aristophanes [writes] "enough of the sardine. For I have been stretched out by eating."[2] They also say a)fu/h ["sardine, anchovy"] in the singular.[3]
Greek Original:
*parate/tamai: e)cw/gkwmai. *)aristofa/nhs: a(/lis a)fu/hs. parate/tamai ga\r e)sqi/wn. le/getai kai\ e(nikw=s h( a)fu/h.
The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is the perfect indicative middle/passive, first person singular, of the verb paratei/nw (I extend, stretch out alongside); see generally LSJ s.v.
[1] The gloss is the same form as the headword, but from the verb e)cogko/w (I heap up, swell out); see generally LSJ s.v.
[2] Aristophanes fr. 506 Kock, now 520 Kassel-Austin. The Suda's quotation follows a scholion to Aristophanes, Acharnians 640 (web address 1), whereas the received fragment, from the comedy Fry-Cooks (Henderson, p. 355), reads ta\ lipara\ ka/ptwn: by bolting the oily things. See also alpha 1244, theta 433.
[3] A grammatical point made as well by the aforementioned scholion; cf. alpha 4660, theta 433. Hesychius, on the other hand, denies that the singular is used in Attic (s.v. a)fu/wn timh/).
