Reminds me of English ‘tie one on’ which I’ve learned in the last few minutes has a disputed origin. I thought there was an even closer idiom – ‘lace one up’ – but either I’m inventing it or it’s in another language.
477 Schol. Ar. Ach. 1133a (p. 141 Wilson)
διὰ τὸ θερμαίνειν οὖν τὸ στῆθος
λέγουσι τὸ μεθύειν καὶ <ἀκρο>θώρακας τοὺς ἀκρομεθύσους ἐκάλουν. κέχρηται δὲ τῇ λέξει καὶ Ἀνακρέων. ἐστὶ δὲ Ἀττική.
cf. Sud. Θ 441 (ii 724 Adler), Zonar. 1068s.
477 Scholiast on Aristophanes, Acharnians
So since being drunk heats the breast they call it
putting on the corslet;
and they used to call the slightly drunk ‘top-corsleted’. Anacreon uses the expression, and it is Attic.
