Adler number: theta,576
Translated headword: spirit-wisest
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Aristophanes [writes]: "next Ariphrades, by far the spirit-wisest, whom [his father] once swore that he was taught by no one, but learned by himself with his wise nature to use his tongue -- each time he went to the whorehouses!"[1]
Greek Original:
Θυμοσοφικώτατος: Ἀριστοφάνης: εἶτ' Ἀριφράδην, πολύ τι θυμοσοφικώτατον, ὅντινά ποτ' ὤμοσε μαθόντα παρὰ μηδενός, ἀλλ' ἀπὸ σοφῆς φύσεως αὐτόματον ἐκμαθεῖν γλωττοποιεῖν, εἰς τὰ πορνεῖα εἰσιόνθ' ἑκάστοτε.
Notes:
The headword, masculine nominative singular, is generated by the corresponding accusative in the quotation.
cf. theta 577.
[1] Aristophanes, Wasps 1280-83 (web address 1). On Ariphrades and his womanising cf. alpha 3940, epsiloniota 146, lambda 753.
