Headword: Οὔρια θεῖτε
Adler number: omicron,947
Translated headword: you are running before the winds; you are running with a fair wind
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] you [pl.] are dancing.
Greek Original:
Οὔρια θεῖτε: ὀρχεῖσθε.
Notes:
The headword phrase comes from Aristophanes, Lysistrata 550 (a choral passage), and also reappears in the Suda at tau 472. The phrase is not glossed in the scholia vetera ad loc.
Despite the gloss given here, the phrase in context actually means 'you are faring well in the contest' (Henderson).
Keywords: comedy; definition; imagery; meter and music; poetry
