Headword: Πεφυσιγγωμένοι
Adler number: pi,1434
Translated headword: garlic-excited
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning they who are] puffed up [by it]. The outside peel of garlic-bulbs is [called][1] a φύσιγξ ; the φυσίγγη . So he jested about this too at the expense of the Megarians, because they have many garlic-bulbs.[2] Or [meaning] filled-up, from a metaphor of the paunches or bladders that receive the wind. Or [meaning] enflamed, swollen. Aristophanes [writes]: "and then the Megarians, garlic-excited with vexations, stole in return [two whores][3] of Aspasia."
Greek Original:
Πεφυσιγγωμένοι: πεφυσημένοι. φύσιγξ δὲ τὸ ἐκτὸς λέπισμα τῶν σκορόδων: ἡ φυσίγγη. ἔπαιξεν οὖν καὶ τοῦτο εἰς Μεγαρέας, ὅτι πολλὰ σκόροδα ἔχουσιν. ἢ πεπλησμένοι, ἀπὸ μεταφορᾶς τῶν τὸν ἄνεμον δεχομένων ἀσκῶν ἢ φυσῶν. ἢ ἐκκεκαυμένοι, οἰδοῦντες. Ἀριστοφάνης: κᾆθ' οἱ Μεγαρεῖς ὀδύναις πεφυσιγγωμένοι, ἀντεξέκλεψαν Ἀσπασίας.
Notes:
The headword, extracted from the quotation eventually given, is the perfect participle, masculine nominative plural, of the verb φυσιγγόομαι . Aristophanes, Acharnians 526–527, with scholion on 526; cf. phi 860, and see Dübner (below) 16.
[1] The scholion has λέγεται , omitted by the lexicographer.
[2] Line 521 has already mentioned the association between the Megarians and garlic bulbs.
[3] The line ends πόρνα δύο , omitted here. For Aspasia see generally alpha 4202.
