Headword: *)hperopeu/ein
Adler number: eta,426
Translated headword: to hoodwink
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to deceive.[1]
[Meaning] to defraud, and [to do] the things associated with that. Aristophanes [writes]: "it is your task with it to roast and turn and hoodwink [...] and afford him everything, except the things the cup knows." He is speaking about Kinesias, [saying] that he was fixated on copulation: [sc. so the phrase means] except the things we swore on the cup not to do. That is, to copulate. It is an oath relating to the cup:[2] "never shall I willingly comply with my husband;" nor "if he forces me by force against my will, I shall be a bad provider and shall not move myself."[3]
