Vetting Status: high
[A place] which may be walked on and is not sacred, into which one may go. Aristophanes in Lysistrata [writes]: "O lady Eileithuia,[1] hold back my delivery, until I go away into a permitted place." Also [sc. attested is the phrase] ὅσια χρήματα ["permitted monies"], [meaning] those that are not sacred. It is also called "of Dionysos."[2]
And Damascius [writes]: [Osiris, Dionysos] "It is not right for a person to become wise in great matters who is not able [to be wise] in small matters."[3] "Since it was right to seek out his brother who had disappeared he took the road to Caria."[4]

Ὅσιον χωρίον: τὸ βέβηλον καὶ μὴ ἱερόν, εἰς ὃ ἔξεστιν εἰσιέναι. Ἀριστοφάνης Λυσιστράτῃ: ὦ πότνι' Εἰλείθυια, ἐπίσχες τοῦ τόκου, ἕως ἂν εἰς ὅσιον ἀπέλθω χωρίον. καὶ ὅσια χρήματα, τὰ μὴ ἱερά. λέγεται δὲ καὶ τὸ Διονύσιον. καὶ Δαμάσκιος: [Ὄσιρις, Διόνυσος.] οὐχ ὅσιόν ἐστι τὰ μεγάλα σοφὸν γενέσθαι τὸν τὰ μικρὰ μὴ δυνάμενον. ἐπεὶ δ' ὅσιον ἦν ἐπιζητῆσαι τὸν ἀφανῆ γεγονότα ἀδελφὸν τὴν ἐπὶ Καρίας ἐτράπετο.
