Headword: *)apoba/qras
Adler number: alpha,3246
Translated headword: apobathrai
Vetting Status: high
[sc. They are] both trivets, which is a word for pots with feet, and the kitchens where meat is prepared for the council after sacrifices.
Greek Original:
*)apoba/qras: kai\ ta\ la/sana, a(\ le/gontai oi( xutro/podes. kai\ ta\ mageirei=a, o(/pou th=| boulh=| skeua/zetai meta\ ta\s qusi/as kre/a.
The headword appears to be the accusative plural (presumably extracted from somewhere -- perhaps Herodotus 9.98.2) of the feminine noun a)poba/qra, a disembarking ladder or gangway; see LSJ s.v. However, the glossing seems better (though even so, imperfectly) suited to the neuter plural a)po/baqra, defined in LSJ as 'sacrifices on disembarkation'. In any event C. Theodoridis in his Photius edition, vol.II p.XCIX, revives Dindorf's suggestion of a connection with an Aristophanic scholion (on ta\ la/sana in Peace 893) which also features under beta 325 and lambda 133.
