Those who perform Homer's poems. Others [sc. define the term as] a family in Chios named after the poet. But others say that this opinion is erroneous, since they get their name from pledges [homera]. For the women of Chios once went mad during the festival of Dionysos, and fought a battle against their menfolk; they stopped [only] after they had exchanged as pledges bridegrooms and brides, whose descendants they call 'Homeridai'.
