Adler number: omicron,812
Translated headword: never will I receive this man, nor at my house will he ever sing the Harmodios [song], because he was a drinking man
Vetting Status: high
In the gatherings of drinkers they used to sing a certain song, called "Harmodios," of which the beginning [was] "beloved Harmodios, you did not die." They used to sing it about Harmodios and Aristogeiton, how they had overthrown the tyranny of the Peisistratids. But there were also other songs, one called of Admetos, the other of Lampon. The meaning [is], never will such a man dine at my house. 'A drinking man' [παροίνιος ] [is what they call] a drunken and violent man.
Greek Original:
Οὐδέποτ' ἐγὼ τοῦτον ὑποδέξομαι: οὐδὲ παρ' ἐμοί ποτε τὸν Ἁρμόδιον ᾄσεται, ὅτι παροίνιος ἀνὴρ ἔφυ: ἐν ταῖς τῶν πότων συνόδοις ᾖδον μέλος τι, Ἁρμόδιον καλούμενον, οὗ ἡ ἀρχή: φίλτατε Ἁρμόδιε, οὔτι που τέθνηκας. ᾖδον δὲ αὐτὸ εἰς Ἁρμόδιον καὶ Ἀριστογείτονα, ὡς καθῃρηκότας τὴν τῶν Πεισιστρατιδῶν τυραννίδα. ἦν δὲ καὶ ἕτερα μέλη, τὸ μὲν Ἀδμήτου λεγόμενον, τὸ δὲ Λάμπωνος. ὁ δὲ λόγος, οὐδέποτε παρ' ἐμοὶ ἑστιαθήσεται ὁ τοιοῦτος. παροίνιος δὲ ὁ μέθυσος καὶ ὑβριστής.
