Headword: Στράτων
Adler number: sigma,1186
Translated headword: Straton, Strato
Vetting Status: high
[Straton] always used to shave and [so did] Kleisthenes, with the aim of appearing always young men. Aristophanes [writes]: "o hot-tempered shaven arsehole! You come to us, you ape, as a eunuch, yet with such a beard rigged up? And who might this one be? Isn't it Straton?"
Greek Original:
Στράτων ἀεὶ ἐξυρᾶτο καὶ Κλεισθένης ἐπὶ τὸ φαίνεσθαι ἀεὶ νέοι. Ἀριστοφάνης: ὦ θερμόβουλον πρωκτὸν ἐξυρημένε: τοιόνδε δ', ὦ πίθηκε, τὸν πώγων' ἔχων, εὐνοῦχος ἡμῖν ἦλθες ἐξυρημένος; ὁδὶ δὲ τίς ποτ' ἐστιν; οὐ δήπου Στράτων;
Aristophanes, Acharnians 119-122, with comments from the scholia. The entry is lacking (Adler reports) in mss AF, and seems to be drawn, with some modification, from kappa 1756, q.v.
