Headword: *katake/leuson
Adler number: kappa,573
Translated headword: enough!
Vetting Status: high
Meaning command silence. For the boatswains were often in the habit of ordering silence, saying 'be silent', and 'listen', and suchlike. Aristophanes in Birds [writes]: "o thrice-blessed, o most renowned, o most wise, o most subtle." Since [Peisetairos] was not listening, [the herald] says "o -- enough!", as if to the rowers. And "o", he is saying, "tell me to stop".

Aristophanes, Birds 1272-3 (web address 1), with comment from the scholia there. Dunbar has a long note, mainly on textual issues -- e.g. whether 'o most wise' occurs twice -- but also airing the problem of what the headword verb, here in the aorist imperative, actually means in this context (which seems to have more nuances than katake/leue in Frogs 207) and to whom it is addressed.
