Headword: Χειροτονητέον
Adler number: chi,262
Translated headword: must be voted upon
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] must have the hand extended upon.[1] Aristophanes [writes]: "the matter [is] difficult; nevertheless, it must be voted upon and you should bare one arm to the shoulder."[2] That is you must bare yourself as far as the shoulders.
Greek Original:
Χειροτονητέον: τὴν χεῖρα ἐκτατέον. Ἀριστοφάνης: χαλεπὸν τὸ πρᾶγμα: ὅμως χειροτονητέον ἐξωμισάσαις τὸν ἕτερον βραχίονα. τουτέστιν ἄχρι τῶν ὤμων γυμνωσάσαις.
Notes:
[1] The headword pertains specifically to voting by show of hands, hence this gloss. Both the headword (from chi 264) and ἐκτατέον in the gloss are verbal adjectives denoting necessity.
[2] Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 266-7 (web address 1 below), with scholion; cf. epsilon 1839.
