Translated headword: having dipped the oar
Vetting Status: high
[Having dipped the oar] you set sail, having come to the nautodikai, who used to judge the [cases] of being foreign.[1] Or from those who make drugs. For they say, "having dipped [it] I will make [it] black."[2]
Greek Original:
*ba/yas th\n kw/phn e)/pleusas, e)lqw\n pro\s tou\s nautodi/kas, oi(\ ta\s th=s ceni/as e)di/kazon. h)\ a)po\ tw=n farmakopoiou/ntwn. le/gousi ga\r to\ ba/yas poih/sw me/lan.
A garbled entry deriving in large part from Harpokration s.v. nautodikai, where Aristophanes fr. 225 Kock (237 Kassel-Austin) is quoted: "I want [to make him] a foreigner suddenly, having dipped to the nautodikai." (Here "I want," e)qe/lw, has become the Suda's e)lqw/n, "having come").
On the nautodikai see generally A.R.W. Harrison, The Law of Athens, ii: procedure (Oxford 1971) 23-4.
[1] Sc. yet masquerading as an Athenian citizen.
[2] Comica adespota fr. 743 Kock (but not separately registered by Kassel-Austin).
