Headword: Ὑποζώματα
Adler number: upsilon,493
Translated headword: reinforcing-planks, undergirdings
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning the] timbers of the ship. Instead of saying "reinforcing-planks" the shoemaker, in jest, said "soups" to a cook, as being an expert in seasonings and soups. It was forbidden to export timber and pitch from Athens. The Spartans too had triremes, since certain islands were part of their empire. Aristophanes [writes]: "I inform against this man and assert that he is exporting, for the Peloponnesian triremes, soups".
Greek Original:
Ὑποζώματα: ξύλα τῆς νεώς. ἀντὶ τοῦ εἰπεῖν ὑποζώματα ὁ σκυτεὺς πρὸς μάγειρον παίζων εἶπε ζωμεύματα, ὡς ἀρτύσεων ἔμπειρον καὶ ζωμευμάτων. ἀπείρητο δὲ ἀπὸ Ἀθηνῶν ἐξάγειν ξύλα καὶ πίσσαν. εἶχον δὲ καὶ Λακεδαιμόνιοι τριήρεις, ἐπειδὴ ἦρχον καὶ νήσων τινῶν. Ἀριστοφάνης. τοῦτον τὸν ἄνδρ' ἐγὼ δείκνυμι καὶ φήμ' ἐξάγειν τῇσι Πελοποννησίων τριήρεσι ζωμεύματα.
Aristophanes, Knights 278-9 (which needs the first verb to be emended to the technical/compound ἐνδείκνυμι : web address 1), with comment from the scholia there; cf. already zeta 134.
