Aristophanes [writes]: "and now I simply want to offer you whatever you wish, except to drink the milk of a kolakretes."

Κολάκρετον: Ἀριστοφάνης: καὶ νῦν ἀτεχνῶς ἐθέλω παρέχειν ὅ τι βούλει σοί, πλὴν τοῦ κολακρέτου γάλα πίνειν.
Notes:
Bdelykleon to his son Philokleon in Aristophanes, Wasps 722-724 (web address 1).
For the office of κωλακρέτης (sic: it should be spelled with omega, and anyway has no form corresponding to the present headword), see kappa 2234 and kappa 2235.
In the present passage 'drinking treasurer's milk' means joining the panel of paid jurors.
