Headword: *kataulou/menoi
Adler number: kappa,840
Translated headword: enduring pipe music, being piped down
Vetting Status: high
[Used] with an accusative. [Meaning they] suffering ridicule.[1] "Laughed at and enduring pipe music, the Spartans were deprived of their walls."[2]
Greek Original:
*kataulou/menoi: ai)tiatikh=|. xleuazo/menoi. a)fh|re/qhsan de\ oi( *lakedaimo/nioi tw=n teixw=n gelw/menoi/ te kai\ kataulou/menoi.
[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is present middle/passive participle, masculine nominative plural, of the verb kataule/w. See LSJ s.v. for its range of direct and applied senses.
[2] This unattributable quotation ludicrously turns upside down the famous scene in Xenophon, Hellenica 2.2.23 (where the Athenians suffer this indignity in 404 BCE after losing the Peloponnesian War): ta\ tei/xh kate/skapton u(p' au)lhtri/dwn pollh=| proqumi/a|. (For the same mistake in reverse see beta 442; and cf. also iota 411.)
