Headword: Κρητικός
Adler number: kappa,2410
Translated headword: Cretic, Cretan
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
There is a rhythm called this.[1]
Aristophanes [writes]: "to kick up the feet Cretan-style."[2]
Greek Original:
Κρητικός: ῥυθμός ἐστιν οὕτω καλούμενος. Ἀριστοφάνης: ὑπανακινεῖν Κρητικῶς τὼ πόδε.
Notes:
[1] There is a metrical unit known as the cretic, consisting of a long syllable, two shorts, and a long (see web address 1). This may or may not be related to the "Cretan rhythm" to which Aristophanes refers (see next note).
[2] Adverbial form of the headword: Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 1165 (see web address 2), with scholion. C.G. Cobet emended the infinitive to ὑπαποκινεῖν "to move away", followed by a full stop. This makes "to move away to dinner" separate from what follows, "So [omitted by Suda here] you too move your feet Cretan-style". This punctuation is now orthodox, whatever the verb.
