Greek Original:
Ὁ Παφλαγὼν οὑτοσὶ προσέρχεται ὠθῶν κολόκυμα καὶ ταράττων καὶ κυκῶν: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐκροφήσων: ἢ ἐπικαλύψων με τῷ κύματι, αἰσχρῶς μέλλων με καταπιεῖν.
The long headword phrase is from Aristophanes, Knights 691-692, but the comments belong to the following line (693), which reads (in part) ὡς δὴ καταπιόμενός με ("as if he's going to swallow me up").
The 'Paphlagonian' is Kleon (kappa 1731); cf. pi 826.
