Headword: Κειτούκειτος
Adler number: kappa,1482
Translated headword: Attested-Unattested
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[A nickname for] Ulpian, one of the deipnosophists.[1]
He was so called[2] because of his constant challenges: is there attestation for hora ['season'] applied to the part of the day? And for methusos ['drunk'] applied to a male? And for metra ['womb'] applied to the edible food? Is there attestation for suagros ['wild boar'] applied to the pig? And he had a private rule, to taste nothing before he had asked whether or not it is attested.
Greek Original:
Κειτούκειτος: Οὐλπιανός, εἷς τῶν δειπνοσοφιστῶν. ἐκλήθη δὲ οὕτως διὰ τὸ συνεχῶς προβάλλειν, εἰ κεῖται ὥρα ἐπὶ τοῦ τῆς ἡμέρας μορίου: καὶ εἰ ὁ μέθυσος ἐπὶ ἀνδρός: καὶ εἰ μήτρα ἐπὶ τοῦ ἐδωδίμου βρώματος: σύαγρός τε εἰ κεῖται ἐπὶ τοῦ συός. καὶ νόμον εἶχεν ἴδιον, μηδενὸς ἀποτρώγειν, πρὶν εἰπεῖν, κεῖται ἢ οὐ κεῖται.
Notes:
[1] In the Deipnosophists by Athenaeus (alpha 731); cf. delta 359: Deipnosophists.
[2] Excerpted from Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 1.1D-E (1.2 Kaibel). Ulpian of Tyre (on the prosopography of this character see Baldwin [1976]), characterised as an extreme Atticist, is concerned with whether any given usage is attested (κεῖται ) or unattested (οὐ κεῖται ) in classical Attic authors.
