Sie wurde auch bey den Chiern sur die Vorsteherinn der Weichlinge und schändlichsten Ueppigkeiten gehalten. Sines. Epist. 44.

Κότυος, θιασώτην, Cotyos contubernalem. Iun. ap. Erasm. Adag. chil. p. 317. Vermuthlich ist sie eben die Göttinn, die bey den, Edonern in Thracien verehret worden. Aeschyl ap. Strab. lib.

Indessen ist doch auch Kotys einer der allerwollüstigsten Könige in Thracien gewesen, der in dunkeln Haynen Schmausereyen angestellet, und mit der Minerva Hochzeit machen wollen. Athen. Dipnos. lib. XII. c. 8. p. 531. Könnte das Sprüchwort und die Göttinn nicht von ihm kommen?
