Adler number: chi,120
Translated headword: reconciliation is companion to the Graces and to Aphrodite
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
That is, peace [is]. Because marriages and festivals are held in time of peace.
Greek Original:
Χάρισι καὶ Ἀφροδίτῃ ξύντροφος ἡ διαλλαγή: τουτέστιν ἡ εἰρήνη. διότι οἱ γάμοι καὶ αἱ ἑορταὶ ἐν καιρῷ τῆς εἰρήνης ἄγονται.
Notes:
The headword phrase is generated by Aristophanes, Acharnians 989, which reads, "O reconciliation, companion of beautiful Kypris [Aphrodite] and the dear Graces" (web address 1). What follows in the entry is from the scholia to this line.
