Translated headword: Kilikon
Vetting Status: high
A surname of Achaios the son of Merops, from [his] nurse Kilissa;[1] [the man] who when he was general betrayed his homeland Miletus and its king to the Prienians. Inasmuch as [the] Cilicians had been accused of wickedness and cruelty,[2] for this reason he was called Kilikon. Pherekrates [writes]: "the gods are always acting like Cilicians to us."[3]
He was prosperous, so there was a proverbial saying about him: "Kilikon good things"; "has" is missing.[4]
