Vetting Status: high
But eu)teli/a [is] happiness. From the [phrase] to pay well. Aristophanes [writes]: "for we give to you the slipper for thriftiness."[1]
Greek Original:
*eu)te/leia: *eu)teli/a de\ h( eu)daimoni/a. para\ to\ eu)= telei=n. *)aristofa/nhs: soi\ ga\r dido/amen e)p' eu)telei/a| to\n sandali/skon.
The entry aims to distinguish between two variants of the same word, eu)te/leia and eu)teli/a, but does not help matters by glossing only the second. (In the Aristophanes manuscripts both versions occur.)
