Headword: Περσικὸς ὄρνις
Adler number: pi,1377
Translated headword: Persian bird
Vetting Status: high
The cockerel, [sc. so called] on account of its crest. Alternatively because all the extravagances of a king used to be called Persian. And here in Aristophanes there is nothing special about its being [called] Persian bird.[1]
On the Persian empire see under Assyrians.[2] For the enumeration of the Persian army see under Darics.[3]
Greek Original:
Περσικὸς ὄρνις: ὁ ἀλέκτωρ, διὰ τὴν λοφίαν. ἢ ὅτι τὰ πολυτελῆ πάντα, οἷς βασιλεὺς ἐχρῆτο, ἐκαλεῖτο Περσικά. καὶ νῦν παρὰ Ἀριστοφάνει οὐκ ἰδίως ὄρνις Περσικός. ζήτει περὶ Περσῶν ἀρχῆς ἐν τῷ Ἀσσύριοι. ζήτει ἀρίθμησιν Περσικοῦ στρατοῦ ἐν τῷ Δαρεικούς.
