[Meaning] penalty, deity's anger, in Aristophanes. For instead of saying 'creature' he said 'penalty', cursing it. "And of what deity in the world it is a visitation, I know not." [He is speaking] about the dung-beetle.
Greek Original:
Προσβολή: ζημία, δαίμονος ὀργή, παρὰ Ἀριστοφάνει. ἀντὶ γὰρ τοῦ εἰπεῖν ζῷον ζημίαν εἶπε, καταρώμενος αὐτῷ. χὤτου ποτ' ἐστὶ δαιμόνων ἡ προσβολή, οὐκ οἶδα. περὶ τοῦ κανθάρου.
Aristophanes, Peace 39-40, with scholion (puzzling in part: Aristophanes himself doesn't, in fact, say 'penalty' in this context).
