"I will leave young men to foolish Pittalakos."[1]
Greek Original:
*pittako/s. kallei/yw de\ ne/ous a)/froni *pittala/kw|.
The unglossed headword is mistakenly repeated from pi 1659 (q.v.); it should have been Pittalakos/Pittalacus, the individual mentioned in the quotation. His name had evidently become a byword for pederasty since Aeschines' prosecution of Demosthenes' associate Timarchos in 346/5.
For Pittalakos see under tau 595.
