[Meaning] Herakles, in papponymical terms.[1] For Amphitryon was son of Alkaios.[2]
Greek Original:
*)alkei/dhs: o( *(hraklh=s pappwnumikw=s. *)alke/ws ga\r pai=s *)amfitru/wn.
[1] i.e. named after his grandfather. (The adverb pappwnumikw=s is very rare, found otherwise only in scholiastic comment on Homer, Iliad 9.191, where Achilles is named after his grandfather Aiakos; cf. alphaiota 5.) Calling Herakles this is commoner in Latin literature (Vergil, Horace, Tibullus, Propertius, et al.) than in Greek.
[2] See alpha 1272 with the note there; and alpha 1777.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; mythology
