Headword: *(ruxa/xeton
Adler number: rho,323
Translated headword: rabble, unstable crowd
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] tumult, throng. Aristophanes [writes]: "but as for the rabble of the Athenians, who would persuade it not to talk nonsense?"
Greek Original:
*(ruxa/xeton: qo/rubon, surfeto/n. *)aristofa/nhs: to\n tw=n *)aqhnai/wn ge mh\n r(uxa/xeton, ti/s a)\n pei/seie mh\ pladdiei=n;
A normalisation of Aristophanes, Lysistrata 170-171 (web address 1), with glossing (of the headword, extracted from it) as in the scholia there.
In the original, all this is supposed to be Laconian dialect, uttered by the Spartan woman Lampito (lambda 92). For its concluding infinitive, see pi 1680. The present headword, a noun in the accusative case, is spelled r(ua/xetos in Hesychius (rho464) and Photius (rho165-166 Theodoridis) -- reckoned to be the correct version by modern editors -- but in some manuscripts of Aristophanes r(ugxa/xetos or (as here) r(uxa/xetos.
