κυδάζεται. The word from which this verb comes is written “κῦδος” by the schol. in L here (“ἀρσενικῶς δὲ κῦδος” “ἐπὶ τῆς ὕβρεως”), and by the schol. on Apoll. Rhod. 1. 1337 “κῦδος ἀρσενικῶς λοιδορία παρὰ Συρακουσίοις”. The schol. in L illustrates the verb by two quotations: (1) from the “Ἄμυκος” of Epicharmus: “Ἄμυκε μὴ κύδαζέ μοι τὸν πρεσβύτερον ἀδελφόν”: (2) from the Iphigeneia of Aeschylus: “οὔ τοι γυναιξὶ κυδάζεσθαι: τί γάρ;”—where Elmsley inserts “δεῖ”, and Blomfield “χρή”, after “γυναιξί”. The verb having “υ^”, the noun must have been “ κύδος” (“υ^”).—For the dat. of the agency, Ἀργείοις, cp. 539.
