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.
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.
