Headword: Βενεβεντός
Adler number: beta,237
Translated headword: Beneventos, Beneventum, Benevento
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Name of a city in Calabria, which Diomedes [Author, Myth] founded. In his voyage home, when he landed at his own country, he was not received, but was banished and departed for Calabria. There he founded a city which he called Argyrippe, the one which was later named Beneventum.[1]
Greek Original:
Βενεβεντός: ὄνομα πόλεως Καλαβρίας, ἣν κτίζει Διομήδης. εἰς γὰρ τὸν ἀπόπλουν καταχθεὶς εἰς τὰ ἴδια οὐκ ἐδέχθη, ἀλλὰ δι- ωχθεὶς ἀπῆλθεν εἰς Καλαβρίαν καὶ κτίζει πόλιν, ἣν ἐκάλεσεν Ἀργυρίππην, τὴν μετονομασθεῖσαν Βενεβεντόν.
Notes:
= George Cedrenus, Compendium historiarum 1.234.12-16; cf. alpha 3791 with the note there on location, and delta 1164 (end).
[1] 'Calabria', twice in the entry, is incorrect for Beneventum. This city (present-day Benevento) was in Samnium, in central (not southern) Italy. See generally OCD(4) s.v. (p.229); Barrington Atlas Map 44 grid G3. (There was another Beneventum near Verona.) On the other hand Argyrippe, a.k.a. Argos [Myth, Place] Hippium, was in Apulia, which is at least within striking distance of Calabria. This odd entry appears to be conflating information about two quite different places.
