Meaning in the beginning, right away. Aristophanes [writes]: "hold on. For straight I have you, holding you at the middle inescapably." The sequence [sc. in which the words are to be taken is]: holding you inescapably I have you, holding [you] straight at the middle. The metaphor [comes] from wrestlers, from those who are taken round the middle and bested.[1] And elsewhere Aristophanes in Clouds [writes]: "you teach the men of today to be wrapped up straight in cloaks."[2]
