Headword: Ἐγγλωττογάστωρ. Ἐγγλωττογάστορες
Adler number: epsilon,141
Translated headword: tongue-belly
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Tongue-bellies, those who make their living by their tongues, like ἐγχειρογάστορες , those [who do so] by their hands.
Greek Original:
Ἐγγλωττογάστωρ. Ἐγγλωττογάστορες, οἱ ἀπὸ τῆς γλώττης βιοτεύοντες, ὡς Ἐγχειρογάστορες, οἱ ἀπὸ τῶν χειρῶν.
Notes:
Same material, variously, in other lexica and grammars -- all stemming from the use of the mock-ethnographic headword in Aristophanes (Birds 1695, 1702).
For the comparandum given (which has its own entry at epsilon 181), LSJ's challenging citation 'Cleanth.ap.Clearch.16' is corrected in the Supplement to 'Anon.ap.Ath.1.4d'. In effect this means that in Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 1.4D (1.1 Kaibel), the passing allusion to ἐγχειρογάστορες is to be dissociated from the name of Cleanthes of Tarentum (a sympotic versifier mentioned only there). Perhaps more to the point in the present context is the fact that a play of this name is attributed to another poet of Old Comedy, Nicophon: see nu 406.
