Greek display:    

Headword: Χορικός
Adler number: chi,403
Translated headword: chorikos, choricus, chorus-leader
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] he who leads out the chorus.
Such a one was Agathon, who used to create dramatic songs and act them out himself; therefore they are also called "choral" [songs].[1]
Greek Original:
Χορικός: ὁ τοῦ χοροῦ ἐξάρχων. τοιοῦτος ἦν Ἀγάθων, ὃς ὑποκριτικὰ μέλη ἐποίει καὶ αὐτὸς ὑποκρίνεται: διὸ καὶ χορικὰ λέγει.
Note:
[1] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Thesmophorizusae 101, where Agathon (alpha 124) appears. For λέγει , Adler reports that ms F (= Laurentianus 55.1) has λέγεται ; this should probably be preferred as it is also the reading in mu 1445.
Keywords: biography; comedy; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; meter and music; stagecraft; tragedy
