Hippon. fr. 3.2 D includes the word kaues, a hapax legomenon in the Greek literary corpus. Modern scholarship has connected it to the Lydian kaues, meaning ‘priest’, and thus considers kaues a lexical borrowing. However, Greek did not need this borrowing, since it has its own word derived from the same Indo-European root as the Lydian kaues, namely kaue. Therefore, I argue that it is better to consider kaues a phonetic adjustment which Hipponax himself made on purpose. Indeed, the phonetic arrangement of kaues gives rise to multiple suggestions as shown by the metaphorical interpretations of the ancient scholarship.
