Headword: Aidein keleuonth' hôsperei tettiga hestiônta
Adler number: alpha,454
Translated headword: asking [me] to sing as if entertaining cicadas
Vetting Status: high

For it is a talkative creature.[1]

Greek Original:
Aidein keleuonth' hôsperei tettiga hestiônta: dioti polulalon esti to zôion. Adein de aresai.
Notes:
[1] The headword phrase comes from Aristophanes, Clouds 1360 (which has plural te/ttigas for the Suda's te/ttiga: see web address 1 below for the text on Perseus), and the gloss from the scholia there.
[2] As opposed to ai)/dein, the form in the headword, "to sing"; again alpha 455.
