Headword: Νῦν ἦλθον εἰς χορόν
Adler number: nu,606

Vetting Status: high
[no gloss]
Greek Original:
Νῦν ἦλθον εἰς χορόν, νῦν τ' ἔπαρδες.
This unglossed headword phrase is apparently a mild corruption of a verse attributed to Sophron (sigma 893, a 5th century Syracusan writer of mimes): see Hesychius nu734 (= Sophron fr. 144 Kaibel, fr.136 Rusten-Cunningham and now Kassel-Austin (PCG vol.I): νῦν τ' ἦνθες ἐς χορόν, νῦν τ' ἔπραδες: νῦν εἰς χορὸν ἦλθες, καὶ νῦν ἔπαρδες. "now you went [a Doric form of the verb] into a dance, and now you farted": now you went [standard Attic form] into a dance, and now you farted.
According to LSJ (web address 1) the aorist ἔπαρδον from πέρδομαι ("I fart") appears only in compounds, though this is not the case here.
cf. generally nu 605.
