Headword: Νομιζόμενα
Adler number: nu,461
Translated headword: usages
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] customs, or assumptions.[1]
Aristophanes [writes]: "so you are assuming the usages of these men." [sc. He writes this] since it was customary for the priest to take the hides and thighbones left over from the sacrifice.[2]
Greek Original:
Νομιζόμενα: νόμιμα, ἢ ὑπολαμβανόμενα. Ἀριστοφάνης: οὐκοῦν τὰ νομιζόμενα τούτων λαμβάνεις. ἐπειδὴ νόμος ἦν τὰ ὑπολειπόμενα τῆς θυσίας τὸν ἱερέα λαμβάνειν δέρματα καὶ κωλαῖ.
[1] Likewise in other lexica; references at Photius nu243 Theodoridis. The headword is present middle/passive participle of νομίζω , neuter nominative/accusative plural. It is perhaps extracted from the quotation given, though the other lexica do not have it, and there are numerous other possibilities.
[2] Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 1185 (web address 1), with scholion; cf. scholion on Aristophanes, Wasps 695; and kappa 2235.
