Headword: Σινώπη
Adler number: sigma,465
Translated headword: Sinope
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A city [of that name].[1]
Also a courtesan [of that name] who was also called Abydos on account of her being an old woman.[2]
Also a proverb, σινωπίσαι ["to Sinopize"]. This was created from the courtesan Sinope: for she was ridiculed for behaving shamefully, just as Alexis said.[3]
And [a] Sinopitan.
Greek Original:
Σινώπη: πόλις. καὶ ἑταίρα, ἥτις καὶ Ἄβυδος ἐλέγετο διὰ τὸ γραῦς εἶναι. καὶ παροιμία, Σινωπίσαι. τοῦτο πεποίηται παρὰ τὴν ἑταίραν Σινώπην: ἐκωμῳδεῖτο γὰρ ἐπὶ τῷ κατασχημονῆσαι, καθάπερ Ἄλεξις ἔφη. καὶ Σινωπίτης.
Notes:
[1] On the southern shore of the Black Sea. See generally OCD4 s.v.
[2] Harpokration s.v. (from which this part of the entry derives) attributes this material to Herodicus, People Satirized in Comedy (fr. 1 During; see generally OCD4 s.v.). The point of the change of name, or nickname, was evidently that Abydos was a city in a more decrepit state than Sinope.
[3] Alexis fr. 104 Kock, now 109 K.-A.
