Headword: Ἰόρτιος
Adler number: iota,423
Translated headword: Iortios, Hirtius
Vetting Status: high
A proper name.[1] "Iortios not being able to express the marvel for himself, when silence fell, [said], 'Do you not see that, my dear drinking-companions, how the table is round and very circular?' So at such sheer flattery, as was likely, laughter broke out. For Maecenas' table was right-angled and not round. Plutarch [says this]."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἰόρτιος: ὄνομα κύριον. ὁ τοίνυν Ἰόρτιος οὐκ ἔχων ὅ τι παρ' ἑαυτοῦ τερατεύσασθαι, σιγῆς γενομένης: ἐκεῖνο δὲ οὐκ ἐννοεῖτε, ὦ φίλοι συμπόται, ὡς στρογγύλη ἐστὶν ἡ τράπεζα καὶ ἄγαν περιφερής; ἐπὶ τοίνυν τῇ ἀκράτῳ κολακείᾳ ὡς τὸ εἰκὸς γέλως κατερράγη: ἐγγώνιος γὰρ ἦν καὶ οὐ στρογγύλη ἡ τοῦ Μαικήνα τράπεζα. Πλούταρχος.
