Headword: Μὴ τὸν ἐμὸν οἴκει νοῦν: ἔχεις γὰρ οἰκίαν
Adler number: mu,1000
Translated headword: do not manage my mind for you have a house
Vetting Status: high
From the [passage] in Euripides' Andromache.[1] Or [sc. it should be] thus: "do not manage my mind, for I myself will suffice".[2]
Greek Original:
Μὴ τὸν ἐμὸν οἴκει νοῦν: ἔχεις γὰρ οἰκίαν: παρὰ τὸ ἐν Ἀνδρομάχῃ Εὐριπίδου. ἢ οὕτως: μὴ τὸν ἐμὸν οἴκει νοῦν: ἐγὼ γὰρ ἀρκέσω.
Aristophanes, Frogs 105, with scholion.
[1] As Adler notes, 'Matthiae' [= the Euripides editor August Matthiae, 1769-1835] proposed emending 'Andromache' to Andromeda (see next note), presumably on the basis that these words do not occur in Euripides' surviving Andromache. But K.J. Dover in his Frogs edition cites line 237 of that play: ὁ νοῦς ὁ σός μοι μὴ ξυνοικοίη "May your way of thought never come to dwell with me, woman!" (Kovacs' translation).
[2] Euripides fr. 144 (Andromeda).
