Headword: Κεχηναίων πόλις
Adler number: kappa,1463
Translated headword: city of Gapenians
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
That of the Athenians, regarded as babblers. [Aristophanes] took the word from [the verb] to gape [κεχηνέναι ], wishing to suggest that the Athenians had airy thoughts.
Greek Original:
Κεχηναίων πόλις: ἡ τῶν Ἀθηναίων, ὡς ληρούντων αὐτῶν. ἀπὸ τοῦ κεχηνέναι ἔλαβε τὸ ὄνομα, ὡς μετέωρα τῶν Ἀθηναίων φρονούντων.
Note:
The headword-phrase comes from Aristophanes, Knights 1262 (web address 1), and the gloss from the scholia there. Cf. Acharnians 635.
