It is a particular food mentioned in Chrysippus, in his [treatise] On the Fine and Pleasurable; its preparation would be rather troublesome.
Greek Original:
Λασταυροκάκκαβον: βρῶμά τι ἐστι παρὰ Χρυσίππῳ εἰρημένον, ἐν τῷ Περὶ καλοῦ καὶ ἡδονῆς: ὡς ἂν τῆς κατασκευῆς αὐτοῦ οὔσης περιεργοτέρας.
Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 1.9C [1.15 Kaibel]. For Chrysippus see generally chi 568, chi 569
This compound term for an aphrodisiac foodstuff defies translation, but for the first of its components (implying effeminacy) see lambda 141; and the second is "partridge" (associated with salaciousness in Athenaeus and elsewhere).
Keywords: definition; ethics; food; gender and sexuality; philosophy; zoology
