Translated headword: lounges
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Lounges are what they used to call certain public places in which many people with time to spare would sit. Homer [writes]: "do you not wish to go to a smithy to sleep, or to some lounge?".[1] Kleanthes says that the lounges were set aside for Apollo, and that they were similar to saloons. [He] also [says that] Apollo himself is called, by some, Lounge-guardian.
"Lounges" [are] also poems by Herakleides Pontikos, written in either Phalaecic or Sapphic metre.[3]
Greek Original:
Λέσχαι: λέσχας ἔλεγον δημοσίους τινὰς τόπους, ἐν οἷς σχολὴν ἄγοντες ἐκαθέζοντο πολλοί. Ὅμηρος: οὐ θέλεις εὕδειν χαλκήϊον ἐς δόμον ἐλθών, ἠέ που ἐς λέσχην. Κλεάνθης δέ φησιν ἀπονενεμῆσθαι τῷ Ἀπόλλωνι τὰς λέσχας, ἐξέδραις δὲ ὁμοίας γίνεσθαι. καὶ αὐτὸν δὲ τὸν Ἀπόλλω παρ' ἐνίοις Λεσχηνόριον ἐπικαλεῖσθαι. Λέσχαι καὶ ποιήματα Ἡρακλείδου τοῦ Ποντικοῦ, μέτρῳ Φαλαικίῳ ἤτοι Σαπφικῷ γραφέντα.
