Headword: Λευκή τις ἀνεπήδησ' ὅμοιος Νικίᾳ
Adler number: lambda,326
Translated headword: someone white like Nikias sprang up
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
This Nikias was effeminate.
Greek Original:
Λευκή τις ἀνεπήδησ' ὅμοιος Νικίᾳ: οὗτος γυναικώδης ἦν ὁ Νικίας.
Notes:
A misquotation of Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 428 (where the "someone" is not feminine, as here, but masculine, after the noun "youth"; see web address 1). Comment from the scholia on the line follows.
This early-fourth-century (BCE) Nikias is taken to be a grandson of the ill-fated general of that name (kappa 1731, lambda 557, mu 534, nu 389, pi 542, upsilon 217).
