Translated headword: Demosthenes the Thracian, Demosthenes Thrax
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
This man wrote a Paraphrase of the Iliad in prose; an Epitome of the works of Damagetus of Heraclea;[1] On Dithyrambic Poets; Paraphrase of Hesiod's Theogony.
Greek Original:
Δημοσθένης Θρᾷξ: οὗτος ἔγραψε Μετάφρασιν Ἰλιάδος πεζῷ λόγῳ, Ἐπιτομὴν τῶν Δαμαγήτου τοῦ Ἡρακλεώτου, Περὶ διθυραμβοποιῶν, Μετάφρασιν εἰς τὴν Ἡσιόδου Θεογονίαν.
Notes:
See generally RE Demosthenes(10). For his epithet cf. Dionysius "the Thracian" (delta 1172) - in his case, in fact, a nickname.
[1] Damagetus, presumably another poet, has already had his own entry at delta 33.
