Radish Reaming

I heard that there was a verb in Ancient Greek meaning "to sodomize with a radish." My Greek professor assured me that this was true, and that it in fact appears in Aristophanes' The Clouds during an argument between New Education and Old Education.

Does anyone here know what that verb is, or how it appears in Aristophanes? It sounds too good to be true.
