Adler number: epsilon,1424
Translated headword: in (the) boys-trainer's (school)
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] into the place where the boys exercise and pass their time.[1] Aristophanes in Clouds [writes]: "when walking in [the] boys-trainer's [school] they had to put the thigh in front." That is to sit decorously, so as to show nothing unseemly to the bystanders.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐν παιδοτρίβου: εἰς τὸν τόπον, ὅπου γυμνάζονται καὶ διατρίβουσιν οἱ παῖδες. Ἀριστοφάνης Νεφέλαις: ἐν παιδοτρίβου δὲ βαδί- ζοντας τὸν μηρὸν ἔδει προβαλέσθαι. τουτέστιν εὐκόσμως καθεσθῆναι ὡς μηδὲν τοῖς περιεστῶσιν ὑποδεῖξαι ἄκοσμον.
The headword phrase is extracted from the quotation given.
