Headword: Εἰ καὶ νῦν ἐγὼ
Adler number: epsiloniota,68
Translated headword: even if now I myself
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"[Even if now I myself] -- because I wish my father, having been freed from these early-rising-blackmailing-litigating-hardgoing ways, to live a gentleman's life like Morychos -- stand accused of doing these things because I am a conspirator and in favour of tyranny". Aristophanes [says this].
Greek Original:
Εἰ καὶ νῦν ἐγὼ τὸν πατέρ' ὅτι βούλομαι, τούτων ἀπαλλαχθέντα τῶν ὀρθοφοιτοσυκοφαντοδικοταλαιπώρων τρόπων, ζῆν βίον γενναῖον ὥσπερ Μόρυχος, αἰτίαν ἔχω ταῦτα δρᾶν ξυνωμότης ὢν καὶ φρονῶν τυραννικά. Ἀριστοφάνης.
Notes:
Aristophanes, Wasps 503-507; cf. omicron 581. (In both entries the nonsense compound word should begin orthro-.)
For Morychos see mu 1264, mu 1265, mu 1266.
