Vetting Status: high
Damascius [writes]: "we are likely to have become the butt of the same jokes of the elegant people."[1]
Greek Original:
Χαριεντίζεις καὶ καταπαίζεις ἡμῶν καὶ βωμολοχεύῃ. Δαμάσκιος: κινδυνεύομεν εἰς αὐτὰ ἐμπεπτωκέναι τὰ τῶν χαριέντων σκώμματα.
The headword phrase is a version of a contextless line of verse attributed to Aristophanes (fr. 161 Kock, now 171 K.-A.) in a scholion to Plato, Republic 436D and in Etymologicum Magnum 807.18-19; cf. (without the actual quotation) Harpokration s.v. βωμολοχεύεσθαι , and see also chi 106.
According to LSJ, classical writers use the middle voice of this verb, i.e. χαριεντίζομαι (as at Republic 436D), and this is achieved in the Aristophanic line by the simple expedient of changing its initial χαριεντίζεις to χαριεντίζει .
[1] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 149 Zintzen (88 Asmus); it quotes Republic 452B.
