Metragyrt (Athenaios quoting Antiphanes)

I crossposted this a few places; I hope it does not annoy.

I'm looking for the text of a fragment where Athenaios quotes Antiphanes (Athenaios 6.226d) to the effect that a metragyrt (one who begged alms for the goddess Meter/Kybele/sometimes Rhea) could insinuate himself into a household by offering to be a "nurse" to the children. I need to know which word is used for "nurse" and in what gender.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
