Headword: Ἀκαδημία
Adler number: alpha,775
Translated headword: Academy
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Three gymnasia existed [sc. in Athens]:[the] Lykeion, [the] Kynosarges, [and the] Academy.[1] [sc. The last of these] was named from Akademos who had dedicated it.
And in the neuter [it is] Akademeon. The term Akademia means the school of friends.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἀκαδημία: τρία ὑπῆρχον γυμνάσια, Λύκειον, Κυνόσαργες, Ἀκαδημία. ἐκλήθη δὲ ἀπὸ τοῦ καθιερώσαντος αὐτὸ Ἀκαδήμου. καὶ οὐδετέρως Ἀκαδήμεον. λέγεται δὲ Ἀκαδημία ἡ τῶν φίλων διατριβή.
Notes:
See already alpha 774, inc. notes and bibliography. The present entry begins by reproducing Harpokration s.v.
[1] Again at gamma 480.
[2] T. Dorandi [see bibliography to previous entry] confirms J. Glucker's rehabilitation of Aemilius Portus' correction of 'school of philoi' to 'school of philosophers' and cites by way of confirmation a scholion on Aristophanes, Clouds 1005 (p. 195 Holwerda). A simple misunderstanding of a scribal abbreviation appears to be the cause of the error.
