[The verb] bohdromei=n ["to run to help"] was the name for helping,[1] that is running into battle. But the Boedromia is a certain festival of this name at Athens, to mark the day when the son of Xouthos[2] had provided such enthusiastic help to [the] Athenians when they were at war with Eumolpos the son of Poseidon. Erechtheus was king of Athens at the time.
