[Meaning] wrappings, or coverings. So Aristophanes [sc. uses the word].[1]
Greek Original:
*ta/phtes: e)pibo/laia, h)\ strw/mata. ou(/tws *)aristofa/nhs.
Same entry in Photius and other lexica. The headword, in the nominative plural (cf. under alpha 1774 and sigma 382), is presumably quoted from somewhere -- probably Theocritus, Idylls 15.125, to judge from scholia both there and also to Aristophanes, where Th. is mentioned. See further, next note.
[1] In the genitive singular: Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 542 (web address 1: not Adler's '528').
