Translation:
A man who passes his life in the mountains.[1] Aristophanes [writes]: "may some Orestes break his head to pieces, in madness."[2]

Ὀρέστης: ὁ ἐν ὄρεσι διαιτώμενος. Ἀριστοφάνης: εἶτα κατεάξειέ τις αὐτὸν τῆς κεφαλῆς Ὀρέστης μαινόμενος.
Notes:
[1] Same gloss in Photius (omicron457 Theodoridis) and other lexica. This lower-case sense of the headword, and its etymology, is otherwise unattested (see LSJ).
