Adler number: omicron,995

Translation:
Aristophanes [writes]: "[...] and other women, all who are of any worth in the city."[1] That is, the aristocrats.[2]
And elsewhere: "[...] but Livius' [sc. disciples] hearing anything from them [sc. his teachings] benefited both in beauty of soul and in eloquence."[3]
Greek Original:
Ὄφελος: Ἀριστοφάνης: ἄλλας τε γυναῖκας, ὅ τι πέρ ἐστιν ὄφελος ἐν τῇ πόλει. τουτέστιν εὐγενεῖς. καὶ αὖθις: τοῦ δὲ Λιβίου ἀκούειν ὧν τι ὄφελος ἦν καὶ ἐν κάλλει ψυχῆς καὶ ἐν εὐγλωττίᾳ παιδείας.
Notes:
The headword, probably extracted from the first quotation given (but also illustrated by the second), is a neuter noun in the nominative/vocative/accusative singular; see generally LSJ s.v.
For the lemma, Adler also cites the Lexicon de Spiritu, L.C. Valckenaer, ed.
[1] An approximation of Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 52-3 (web address 1), already in brief at omicron 738. [In her critical apparatus Adler notes that ms V reads ἄλλας γε γυναῖκας , at any rate other women. Aristophanes' text actually has χἀτέρας ... γυναῖκας .]
[2] From the scholia to the aforementioned passage.
[3] Aelian fr. 83 Hercher (Domingo-Forasté, p. 70), already (with fuller context) at kappa 2098.
