Headword: Χιανεύει καὶ λαικάζει
Adler number: chi,297
Translated headword: he is smelting ... and going whoring
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Aristophanes [writes]: Agathon is beginning "to put in the stocks the beginnings of a drama. He is bending new felloes of verses; some he is turning on the lathe, others he is patching together; and he is coining maxims and using rhetorical figures; he is moulding, he is modelling, he is smelting... [Another speaker:] ... and going whoring."
Greek Original:
Χιανεύει καὶ λαικάζει: Ἀριστοφάνης. Ἀγάθων ἄρχεται δρυόχους τιθέναι δράματος ἀρχάς: κάμπτει δὲ νέας ἁψίδας ἐπῶν: τὰ δὲ τορεύει, τὰ δὲ κολλομελεῖ καὶ γνωμοτυπεῖ κἀντονομάζει καὶ κηροχυτεῖ καὶ γογγυλίζει καὶ χιανεύει καὶ λαικάζει.
Notes:
From delta 1547, q.v.
The unglossed quotation that comprises this entry is Aristophanes, Thesmophoriazusae 52-57 (web address 1), lampooning the style of the tragedian Agathon. The first verb picked out as the headword phrase should however be χοανεύει ; the Suda's χιανεύει is repeated from the earlier entry.
