He is using it in reference to excusing oneself and denying. For Dionysus has proclaimed in response to Euripides, "and of course you offer frankincense"; he introduced, "fine: for there are other gods to whom I pray". Wherefore Dionysus says: "your own [gods], a fresh stamp?"[1]
"And if [he] offered the remaining ones too, well and good."[2]
Greek Original:
Καλῶς: τοῦτο ἐπὶ παραιτήσει καὶ ἀρνήσει χρῶνται. εἰρηκότος γὰρ τοῦ Διονύσου πρὸς Εὐριπίδην, ἐπίθες καὶ σὺ δὴ λιβανωτόν: ἐπήγαγε, καλῶς: ἕτεροι γάρ εἰσιν οἷσιν εὔχομαι θεοῖς. διὸ λέγει ὁ Διόνυσος: ἴδιοί τινές σοι, κόμμα καινόν. εἰ καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ προσέσχε καλῶς τε καὶ εὖ.
