Headword: Κιθαραοιδότατος
Adler number: kappa,1591
Translated headword: most proficient on the kithara
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"You have produced three sons, who are most talented in the arts. First, someone who is friend to everyone and most/very wise, the most proficient on the kithara, one whom grace has visited." Aristophanes says [this].[1]
Greek Original:
Κιθαραοιδότατος: παῖδας ἐφύτευσας ὅτι χειροτεχνικωτάτους. πρῶτα μὲν ἅπασι φίλον ἄνδρα τε σοφώτατον, τὸν κιθαραοιδότατον, ᾧ χάρις ἐφέσπετο. Ἀριστοφάνης φησί.
Notes:
The headword, which occurs in the quotation, is a comic superlative of the adjective κιθαραοιδός (uncontracted form of κιθαρῳδός ). For the kithara see kappa 1590.
[1] Aristophanes, Wasps 1276-1278 (web address 1), on the sons of Automenes; Arignotos in this instance (see under epsiloniota 146 and other entries).
