Headword: Λέγεις μοι χαράν, λέγεις μοι βοᾶν
Adler number: lambda,224
Translated headword: you tell me joy (and) you tell me shouting
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Aristophanes in Plutus [sc. says this]. Meaning you are announcing to me [something] worthy of joy, so that, overcome with joy, I will shout.
Greek Original:
Λέγεις μοι χαράν, λέγεις μοι βοᾶν: Ἀριστοφάνης Πλούτῳ. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀναγγέλλεις μοι χαρᾶς ἄξιον, ὥστε βοᾶν τῇ χαρᾷ νικώμενον.
Notes:
Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 637 (web address 1), with scholion. The accepted reading is the noun βοάν rather than the Suda's infinitive βοᾶν (different accentuation).
For 'joy' see chi 85.
