Headword: Thasios oinos
Adler number: theta,59
Translated headword: Thasian wine
Vetting Status: high
Also [sc. attested is] a proverb: "if you were pouring in Thasian." [It arose] because Staphylos, the beloved of Dionysos, lived in Thasos. Thasian wine is exceptional. "You were pouring in" means you were mixing.[1]
Greek Original:
Thasios oinos. kai paroimia: ei Thasion enecheis. epeidê en Thasôi ôikei Staphulos ho erômenos Dionusou. diapherei de ho Thasios oinos. enecheis de anti tou ekirnas.
For Thasian wine -- the present headword phrase, here unglossed -- see already under theta 58.
[1] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 1021, where the phrase occurs. (It is not, in point of fact, proverbial, if that means being taken up by the paroemiographers.) See already epsilon 1276. Staphylos is more usually held to be Dionysos' son than his beloved.
