Headword: *)epai/omen e)n *braurw=ni
Adler number: epsilon,2011
Translated headword: we used to bang (on the way) to Brauron
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] we are (sic) intimate with, we used to drive. Brauron [is] a place in Athens.
Greek Original:
*)epai/omen e)n *braurw=ni: sunousia/zomen, h)lau/nomen. *braurw\n de\ to/pos *)aqh/nhsin.
(Entry lacking, Adler reports, in mss TF.)
The headword phrase quotes (loosely) Aristophanes, Peace 874, and these are the glosses of scholia on the verb in it. The complete phrase is "Theoria, whom once we used to bang (on the way) to Brauron" (web address 1). See generally J. Henderson, The Maculate Muse (New Haven 1975) 171 #308 on pai/ein (and 162 #260 on e)lau/nein). Implicit here seems to be the idea of sexual licence at or in connection with the Brauronia festival.
For Brauron see beta 521, and generally Robin Osborne, Demos (Cambridge 1985) 154-72.
