The headword phrase is otherwise unattested in this form. If it is quoted from somewhere, therefore, the source is unidentifiable. Alternatively, it might well be a generic/paradigmatic phrase generated by one in Lucian, Dialogues of the Courtesans 6.3: ou)/te u(peremforei=tai tou= o)/you a)peiroka/lws 'nor does [she] fill herself with the relish in a vulgar manner.' Compare also Lucian, Symposium 11.
