Headword: Ἶσα βαίνων Πυθοκλεῖ
Adler number: iota,607
Translated headword: keeping pace with Pythokles
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Demosthenes in the [speech] Against Aeschines [sc. uses the phrase];[1] it means always accompanying and not leaving even for a moment. And Menander [says]: "an expensive courtesan keeping pace with him".[2]
"For truly they appear to me like falsehoods" - referring to ambiguous and gloomy matters. [So says] Aristophanes in Birds.[3]
Greek Original:
Ἶσα βαίνων Πυθοκλεῖ: Δημοσθένης ἐν τῷ κατ' Αἰσχίνου: ἀντὶ τοῦ συνὼν ἀεὶ καὶ μὴ βραχὺ ἀφιστάμενος. καὶ Μένανδρος: παρ' αὐτὸν ἴσα βαίνουσα ἑταίρα πολυτελής. ἶσα γὰρ ἀληθῶς φαίνεταί μοι ψεύδεσιν, ἐπὶ τῶν ἀμφιβόλων πραγμάτων καὶ δυσελπίστων. Ἀριστοφάνης Ὄρνισι.
Notes:
The first paragraph here is abbreviated from Harpokration s.v.
[1] Demosthenes 19.314; cf. omicron 1027. Pythokles Pythodorou was one of Aeschines' political associates (and thus one of Demosthenes' opponents).
[2] Menander fr. 708 Koerte (483 K.-A.).
[3] Aristophanes, Birds 1167, with gloss. This addendum to the entry simply arises from the appearance, here too, of ἶσα .
