Headword: Κατωνάκης
Adler number: kappa,1115
Translated headword: of a katonake
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[sc. A katonake is] a tunic for slaves and not for free men.[1] "Depilated in the cunt katonake-fashion."[2] He is referring to the slave-women.
Greek Original:
Κατωνάκης: δουλικὸς καὶ ἀνελεύθερος χιτών. κατωνάκῃ τὸν χοῖρον ἀποτετιλμένας. τὰς δούλας φησί.
Notes:
[1] On the katonake see already kappa 1114. This genitive singular of the noun is probably quoted (despite what follows: see next note) from Aristophanes, Lysistrata 1155.
[2] Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 724 (web address 1), preceded by comment from the scholia there. See generally J. Henderson, The Maculate Muse (New Haven 1975) 131-2, #110 on χοῖρος as cunt and #111 on female genital depilation. But to be depilated "katonake-fashion" must mean either not depilated (so Ussher ad loc.) or else depilated roughly and crudely.
Reference:
Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae, edited with introduction and commentary by R.G.Ussher (Oxford 1973 and reprints).
