A comic [dramatist]. Amongst his plays is Shipowners, [and] Persian Woman.[1]
'Ship-master' [naukrates], however, is what someone liked to say in reference to a ship-securer [anchor]; as being the same thing, i.e. to secure a ship, hence ship-securer, and to control a ship, hence ship-master.[2]
Greek Original:
Ναυσικράτης, κωμικός. τῶν δραμάτων αὐτοῦ ἐστι Ναύκληροι, Περσίς. Ναυκράτην μέντοι εἰπεῖν ἐφίλησέ τις ἐπὶ ἐχενηί̈δος φάναι: ὡς ταυτὸν ὂν ἔχειν, ἤγουν ἐπέχειν νῆα, ὅθεν ἡ ἐχενηί̈ς, καὶ ναῦν κρατεῖν, ὅθεν ὁ ναυκράτης.
