ὀπτα?́ν-ιον , τό, for roasting, kitchen, Ar.Eq. 1033, Pax891, Alex.173.13, Philem.61, etc.; oven, PHolm. 11.18: these and other passages from Com. Poets, together with IG22.1672.189, SIG1097.28 (both iv B. C.), show that ὀπτάνιον is a real form, but ὀπτανεῖον , which is found in codd. of Plu.Crass. 8, Luc.Asin.27, etc., can be defended by the older ὀπτανήϊον (v. Hdn.Gr.2.417) and would be a normal derivative from ὀπτανεύς :—mock-heroic gen. pl. ὀπτανιάων for ὀπτανίων, MatroConv.12.
II. firewood for roasting, Man. ap. J.Ap.1.26.
