Headword: *plataia/
Adler number: pi,1700
Translated headword: Plataia, Plataea
Vetting Status: high
A city [of that name].[1] Also [sc. attested is the accusative] *pla/taian,[1] a name of a city.
Greek Original:
*plataia/: po/lis. kai\ *pla/taian, o)/noma po/lews.
[1] In southern Boiotia, central Greece; site of a Greek victory in the Persian War, 479 BCE. See also pi 1701; OCD4 s.v. Plataea. (The Suda's accentuation of the headword here on the final syllable is odd, and probably mistaken. The normal singular toponym was *pla/taia -- though in fact plural *plataiai/ is more commonly found.)
[2] Evidently quoted from somewhere; perhaps Homer, Iliad 2.504, though there are many other possibilities.
