[2] Aristophanes, Peace 991-2 (web address 1), with scholion. On the face of it the wordplay is simple enough -- Peace will acquire the name Lysimache, Battle-stopper -- but it has the extra dimension of the fact that this was the name of Athens' venerable and longstanding priestess of Athena Polias. See on this J. Henderson, Aristophanes, Lysistrata (Oxford 1987) xxxviii-ix.
