It is a prominent clan/family in Athens, [sc. named] from Alkman.
Greek Original:
*)alkmaioni/dai: ge/nos e)stin e)pifane\s *)aqh/nh|sin, a)po\ *)alkma=nos.
Despite deriving from Harpokration s.v. *)alkmaiwni/dai (sic), this is an entry inferior in quality to the parallel one following, alpha 1292 (q.v.). The eponym of the family was Alkmaion; "Alkman" (in all but one of the Suda manuscripts) is a slip perhaps induced by the two preceding entries, alpha 1289/alpha 1290.
