Aristophanes [writes]: "and that too after they have been cruelly bruised [each and every one] and have been applying cups."[1] Meaning severely struck under the eyes. Hypopia[2] are the swellings and batterings, which they call 'strokes'. They treat the black eyes with cups or they make them disappear by bathing them in copper saucers or in [sc. other ways] of that kind. Apollophanes [writes]: "Might I get a cup for my black eyes."[3]
Greek Original:
Ὑπωπιασμέναι: Ἀριστοφάνης: καὶ ταῦτα δαιμονίως ὑπωπιασμέναι καὶ κυάθους προσκείμεναι. ἀντὶ τοῦ σφόδρα πληγεῖσαι περὶ τὰ ὑπώπια. ὑπώπια δέ ἐστι τὰ ὀγκώματα καὶ κρούματα, ἅπερ κονδύλας φασί. τοῖς κυάθοις δὲ προσθλῶσι τὰ ὑπώπια ἢ ἐν ὀξυβάφοις χαλκοῖς τὰ ὑπώπια ἀνατρίβοντες ἢ τοιούτοις τισὶν ἀφανῆ ποιοῦσιν. Ἀπολλοφάνης: κύαθον λάβοιμι τοῖς ὑπωπίοις.
