Translation:
"Of an upturned pitcher."[1] Aristophanes [uses this phrase] to mean one that has had its lid opened and has been emptied onto the ground, just like those who fall down in their cups from drinking in the midst of serving. Or those who are playing say such things.
Greek Original:
Χοός: ἀνατετραμμένου χοός. Ἀριστοφάνης: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀνακαλυφθέντος ἢ κενωθέντος εἰς γῆν, ὥσπερ οἱ ἐν τοῖς πότοις σφαλλόμενοι ὑπὸ μέθης ἐν τῷ ὑπηρετεῖν. ἢ παίζοντες τὰ τοιαῦτά φασι.
