[Meaning an] offspring.[1] Aristophanes [writes]: "let him become a partridge, his father's nestling". The son of Pisias wants to become like his father. Pisias was a traitor.[2] And elsewhere: "three shameless creatures, Pisias, Osphyon, Diitrephes."[3]
Greek Original:
Νεόττιον: γέννημα. Ἀριστοφάνης: πέρδιξ γενέσθω τοῦ πατρὸς νεόττιον. τοῦ Πισίου ὁ υἱὸς ὅμοιος βούλεται γενέσθαι τῷ πατρί. ἦν δὲ ὁ Πισίας προδότης. καὶ αὖθις: τρία κνώδαλα ἀναιδῆ, Πισίας Ὀσφύων, Διϊτρέφης.
