Headword: Καπηλικῶς
Adler number: kappa,334
Translated headword: deceptively, vamped up for sale
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning rascally. Since tavern-keepers adulterate the wine, mixing old [wine] with it.[1]
"Your tavern-keepers make the wine turbid."[2]
Greek Original:
Καπηλικῶς: ἀντὶ τοῦ πανουργικῶς. ἐπεὶ οἱ κάπηλοι ὀνθυλεύουσι τὸν οἶνον, συμμιγνύντες αὐτῷ σαπρόν. οἱ κάπηλοι ὑμῶν θολοῦσι τὸν οἶνον.
Notes:
[1] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 1063, where the headword adverb occurs (web address 1); cf. omicron 366.
LSJ s.v. cites a papyrus with (unless it is corrupt) the phrase πανουργικὸν ξύλον , 'gallows-wood.' Thus the adverb πανουργικῶς could be translated 'gallows-worthy,' an apt description of dishonest bartenders ancient and modern.
[2] Apparently a paraphrase (tentatively attributed by Adler to Symeon Metaphrastes) of Isaiah 1.22 LXX.
