Headword: Λυκαβηττὸς
Adler number: lambda,794
Translated headword: Lykabettos, Lycabettus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Lykabettos] and Parnassos [are] very large mountains, one in Attika and the other in Phokis. "If you are speaking to us of Lykabettoses and the heights of Parnassoses, is this teaching what is useful?".[1] In reference to those boasting for some reason. Aristophanes [sc. says this].
Greek Original:
Λυκαβηττὸς καὶ Παρνασσὸς ὄρη μέγιστα, τὸ μὲν τῆς Ἀττικῆς, τὸ δὲ τῆς Φωκίδος. ἦν σὺ λέγῃς ἡμῖν Λυκαβηττοὺς καὶ Παρνασσῶν μεγέθη, τουτέστι τὸ χρηστὰ διδάσκειν. ἐπὶ τῶν εἴς τι μεγαλαυχούντων. Ἀριστοφάνης.
Note:
[1] Aristophanes, Frogs 1056-7 (web address 1), with comment from the scholia there. Some editors have followed Bentley in emending Parnassos to Parnes (which is also, like Lykabettos, within Athenian territory); Dover retains Parnassos, and sees nothing odd in its being a "mountain" of a quite different order of magnitude.
