Headword: *)/embaro/s ei)mi
Adler number: epsilon,937
Translated headword: I am weighty
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning I am] sound of mind, thoughtful. Peiraieus was previously an island.[1] This, in fact, is how it got its name: from the crossing [diaperan]. Mounykhos, who possessed its headlands, established a shrine of Artemis Mounykhia.[2] After a she-bear appeared in it and was done away with by the Athenians a famine ensued, and the god prophesied the means of relieving the famine: someone had to sacrifice his daughter to the goddess. Baros[3] was the only one who undertook to do so, on the condition that his family held the priesthood for life. He had his daughter adorned but then hid her in the same [shrine?],[4] and dressed a goat up in her clothing and sacrificed it as though it were his daughter. Hence he gave rise to a proverb. It is employed in reference to those who are addled and raving.[5]

From Photius, Lexicon epsilon692 Theodoridis (with a lavish note). For this material see also beta 122 and pi 1455.
[1] So e.g. Strabo 1.3.18.
[2] Mounykhos is cross-referenced at mu 1289.
[3] The name means 'Mister Weighty' (but apparently implying intellectual rather than bodily "weight").
[4] Other versions have 'in the adyton' (cf. generally alpha 542).
[5] Perhaps as a euphemism?

Headword: *parqe/nioi
Adler number: pi,666
Translated headword: virginals
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] those who are born to a virgin before getting married; but by Athenians the daughters of Erechtheus [sc. are called this]. And in Gorgias 'virgin' is applied to every[thing/one] that has no share.[1] They are also called 'uncorrupted' by transference.
Greek Original:

Photius (pi407 Theodoridis) has the same entry under the lemma parqe/noi, but LSJ notes the term parthenios as 'the son of an unmarried girl' as early as Homer, Iliad 16.180. For Erechtheus' daughters as parthenoi, see again at pi 668; and cf. generally pi 662.
[1] This is not borne out in the surviving writings of Gorgias, and the allusion to him here remains opaque. (For its substance, nevertheless, Theodoridis (above) quotes a scholion to Euripides, Orestes 108: parqe/nos de/ e)stin h(/ te a)migh\s kai\ h( a)/rti h(bw=sa.)

Headword: *parqe/noi
Adler number: pi,668
Translated headword: Maidens, Virgins
Vetting Status: high
This is what they used to call the daughters of Erechtheus[1] and they honoured them;[2] [they were] six in number. The eldest [was] Protogenia, the second Pandora, the third Prokris, the fourth Creusa, the fifth Orithyia, the sixth Chthonia. Of these Protogenia and Pandora are said to have given themselves to be slaughtered on behalf of their country when an army came from Boeotia. They were slaughtered on the hill called Hyacinthus on behalf of the Sphendonians. Hence they are also called the Hyacinthid Maidens, as Phanodemus attests in his fifth Atthis, when recalling the honour shown them, and Phrynichus in Recluse.[3]

Same entry in Photius (pi408 Theodoridis; cf. n. 2 below); see also Hesychius p925 and the paroemiographer Apostolius (14.7).
[1] See already under pi 666.
[2] Adopting the reading of Photius, e)ti/mwn h)=san, rather than e)timw/rhsan, which would mean "they took vengeance upon".
[3] Phanodemus FGrH 325 F4; Phrynichus fr. 30 Kock (31 K.-A.). For the Hyacinthids see also Clement of Alexandria, Stromata; Demosthenes 60.27; Diodorus Siculus 17.15.2; and Euripides fr. 65 (from the Erechtheus) in Nova fragmenta Euripidea in papyris reperta, ed. Colin Austin.
