Adler number: epsilon,157
Translated headword: right-angled table
Vetting Status: high
[A table] which is not round and not too circular. "In Maecenas' dining-room there was a right-angled table below the couch, very great in size and incomparable in beauty; and as was likely different men praised it in different ways. But Iortios not being able to express the marvel for himself, when silence fell, [said], 'But, my dear drinking-companions, there is something you fail to notice: it is round and very circular.' So at such sheer flattery, as was likely, laughter broke out. Plutarch [sc. says this]."[1]
