Greek Original:
Κίκινος: ναὶ μὰ τὸν εὐέρωτα Τιμοῦς φιλέρωτα κίκινον. καὶ Ἀριστοφάνης: ὡς ἐγὼ τοὐμὸν νομίζω γῆρας εἶναι κρεῖττον, ἢ πολλῶν κικίννους νεανιῶν καὶ σχῆμα καὶ εὐρυπρωκτίαν.
LSJ s.v. κίκιννος . LSJ distinguishes between κίκινος "made of wood from the castor-oil tree" [cf. kappa 1595] and κίκιννος "ringlet".
[1] Greek Anthology 5.197.1. Our accepted text has the spelling κίκιννος , as does the Suda's following quotation of Aristophanes.
[2] Aristophanes, Wasps 1067-1070 (web address 1); quoted more fully in kappa 2657. εὐρυπρωκτία is of course "being a bottom", "effeminacy" (see also epsilon 1121).
