Adler number: lambda,98
Translated headword: lamp-bearers
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Aristophanes:[1] for we men, just as if we were lamp-bearers, have stooped over. For those carrying lamps are stooped because of the wind.
Greek Original:
Λαμπροφόροι: Ἀριστοφάνης: οἱ γὰρ ἄνδρες ὥσπερ λαμπροφόροι ὄντες ἀποκεκύφαμεν. οἱ γὰρ λυχνοφοροῦντες κεκύφασι διὰ τὸν ἄνεμον.
Notes:
From the scholia to Aristophanes, Lysistrata 1003; see already at alpha 3344.
[1] Aristophanes' words themselves are not actually quoted (and the present headword is not amongst them anyway).
Keywords: comedy; daily life
