[1] A women's festival in honour of Demeter, celebrated (in Athens and elsewhere) in the autumn. See OCD(4) s.v. and more fully e.g. H.W. Parke, Festivals of the Athenians (London 1977) 82-88, 158-160.
[2] Aristophanes, Birds 1519-20 -- but here faulty in transmission: ὥσπερ ἐν should be ὥσπερεί and, more crucially, the particle ἄν should be the preposition ἄνευ , "without" (see the tr. above, and web address 1).
