Headword: *qasi/an kukw=si lipara/mpuka
Adler number: theta,58
Translated headword: they mix a bright-headbanded Thasian [sauce]
Vetting Status: high
Tharsos is different from thrasos: for tharsos is the term for the sensible state of the soul, but thrasos the opposite.[1]
Aristophanes [sc. uses the headword phrase].[2] Such as a bowl filled with Thasian wine.[3] And a)/mpuc[4] is the term for the encompassing part. So here he is speaking of the lid of the vessel: 'bright' because of the sweetness of the wine, 'headbanded' from the fact that it protects and covers the wine -- by a misuse of language. The [word] 'flagon' he omits, since they smear the mouth with pitch; [but] not persuasively; for Thasian wine is not yet esteemed amongst Athenians. Others [explain the headword phrase by saying] that certain Thasian radishes are being spoken of. He is saying that the [preparation] has been seasoned and is being shaken. Others claim that a Thasian dye is being spoken of. Others [maintain that the passage refers to] the so-called hot-drink cup,[5] or Thasian dip,[6] into which they used to douse char-grilled fish.

[1] This intrusive material is lacking, Adler reports, in ms F (Laurentianus 55.1). qa/rsos and qra/sos are different dialect forms of the same word -- irrelevant to the entry.
[2] Aristophanes, Acharnians 471, the scholia to which are drawn upon for what follows.
[3] For Thasian wine see also theta 59 (as well as further below).
[4] The second element in 'bright-headbanded'; see alpha 1658.
