A place in Attica, in which the Dionysia used to be held and they would drink and snatch up many prostitutes. And Aristophanes [writes]: "o master, how great a five-year-festival arse she has."[1] [This] is said because of the fact that the sacred Dionysiac delegations are sent every five years.[2]
See under "bear".[3]
