Headword: Ὑφελκτέον τῶν δᾴδων
Adler number: upsilon,707
Translated headword: some of the firebrands must be pulled out
Vetting Status: high
Meaning must be removed. Aristophanes [writes]: "some of the firebrands must be pulled out and some of the meats skimmed off." They do this when the pan is bubbling, taking [it] out of the meats.
Greek Original:
Ὑφελκτέον τῶν δᾴδων: ἀντὶ τοῦ ὑφαιρετέον. Ἀριστοφάνης: ὑφελκτέον τῶν δᾴδων καὶ ἀπερυστέον τῶν κρεῶν. τοῦτο ποιοῦσιν, ὅταν παφλάζῃ ὁ λέβης, ἀφαιροῦντες ἐκ τῶν κρεῶν.
Aristophanes, Knights 920-1 (web address 1), with a shaky version of the scholia there. Also, the text itself is misquoted: 'meats' (κρεῶν ) should be 'threats' (ἀπειλῶν ).
