Headword: Orgeônas
Adler number: omicron,512
Translated headword: cult-members
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
There is a speech of Isaeus to cult-members.[1] Cult-members [o)rgew=nes] are those coming together to honor gods or heroes; for [the verb] o)rgia/zein is sacrificing and seeing[2] the customary acts - either from stretching out [o)re/gein] the hands or from the secret rites [o)/rgia,[3] or because the ceremonies are performed in o)rga/des[4] and groves. Perhaps the custom of giving the same name to people gathered together to honor some of the dead and to cult-members arose later, as can be seen from the will of Theophrastus.
"One of the orgeones from Eleusis", says Aelian in On Forethought.[5]
Greek Original:

Notes:
The main part of this entry is an abridgement of Harpokration s.v.
For the headword noun (here in the accusative plural: see next note) cf. omicron 509, omicron 510, omicron 511.

[2] So the transmitted text, o(ra=n; but change to dra=n, "performing" (as in Harpok.). On o)rgia/zein, see omicron 516.
