Headword: Ἀπολλωνιὰς λίμνη
Adler number: alpha,3416
Translated headword: Lake Apollonias
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Attalos, the king of Asia,[1] waged war against Nikomedes the One-toothed[2] and gained control of his territory. But Nikomedes called on the Romans and regained his kingdom. Attalos laid to rest his deceased mother Apollonias[3] alongside the greatest shrine in Pergamon, which he himself had built, and he named the neighboring lake after her.
Greek Original:
Ἀπολλωνιὰς λίμνη: ὅτι Ἄτταλος, ὁ τῆς Ἀσίας βασιλεὺς, Νικομήδει τῷ Μονόδοντι πολεμήσας ἐκράτησε τῆς αὐτοῦ χώρας. ἀλλ' ὁ μὲν Ῥωμαίους ἐπικαλεσάμενος ἀνέλαβε τὴν ἀρχήν. Ἄτταλος δὲ τὴν ἑαυτοῦ μητέρα Ἀπολλωνιάδα μεταλλάξασαν κατὰ τὸ μέγιστον ἱερὸν Περγάμου κατέθετο, ὅπερ αὐτὸς ἐδείματο, τήν τε γείτονα λίμνην αὐτῇ προσωνόμασεν.
Notes:
Adler attributed this material to John of Antioch (Neos Hellenomnemon 1.13.2-7), noting also the suggestion of Johann Schweighaeuser (1742-1830) that its ultimate source is Polybius. See now John fr.145.1 Roberto.
