Aristophanes, Wasps 1364 (web address 1), Bdelykleon insulting his father Philokleon.
For the first of these words see tau 1209 (and sigma 1263). On the second, the present one, consult J. Henderson, The Maculate Muse (New Haven 1975) 131-2 (#111) and 175 (#328), whose two translations I borrow here.
