Aristophanes [writes]: "what else, but that she must be established with cooking-pots?"[1] That is, Peace; for whenever they are going to set up altars or statues of a god, they would roast pulses and offer first-fruits of these for the things being set up, taking a portion of the early meal as thank-offerings. Aristophanes in Danaeans [writes]: "I call to witness the cooking-pots of Zeus of the Household, with which that altar was once set up [ἱδρύσθη ]."[2] Sometimes they are set up with a very lavish rite. Establishing herms and other certain statues in front of the doors, so as not to delay the dedication, to offer porridge in cooking-pots. [Despite?] complaining that she is much-honoured with other sacrifices, they offered this. "So driving off the evil cloud of war, they chose Peace and made offering on her shrine."[3] As of a Herm being established with cooking-pots.
Greek Original:
Χύτραις ἱδρυτέον: Ἀριστοφάνης: τί δ' ἄλλο γ', ἢ ταύτην χύτραις ἱδρυτέον; τουτέστι τὴν εἰρήνην: ὁπότε γὰρ μέλλοιεν βωμοὺς καθιδρύειν ἢ ἀγάλματα θεοῦ, ἕψοντες ὄσπρια ἀπήρχοντο τούτων τοῖς ἀφιδρυμένοις, χαριστήρια ἀπονέμοντες τῆς πρώτης διαίτης. Ἀριστοφάνης Δαναί̈σι: μαρτύρομαι δὲ Ζηνὸς Ἑρκείου χύτρας, μεθ' ὧν ὁ βωμὸς οὗτος ἱδρύσθη ποτέ. ἔστι δ' ὅτε καὶ πολυτελεστέρῳ ἱερείῳ ἀφιδρύοντο. ἑρμᾶς δὲ ἱδρύοντες πρὸ τῶν θυρῶν καὶ ἄλλα τινὰ ἱδρύματα, ὑπὲρ τοῦ μὴ βραδύνειν τὴν ἀνάστασιν, χύτραις ἀθάρας ἱδρύεσθαι. μεμφόμενοι δὲ ὡς πολυτίμητον οὖσαν ἄλλαις ἱερωσύναις αὐτὴν ἱδρύσαντο. ὡς οἱ μὲν νέφος ἐχθρὸν ἀπωσάμενοι πολέμοιο, εἰρήνην εἵλοντο, ἱδρύσανθ' ἱερείῳ. ὡς τοῦ Ἑρμοῦ χύτραισιν ἱδρυμένου.
