Headword: Paianas
Adler number: pi,838

Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] revels, celebrations.[1]
There were two paeans: Enyalios, when they began, which also used to take place before the battle; and another when they were winning.[2] [Note] that the ancients used to sing two paeans, before the war for Ares, and after the war for Apollo. But Thucydides says "as they were sailing forth" instead of "as toward beginning the war."[3]

Paianes duo êsan: Enualios, hote êrchon: hos kai pro tês machês egineto: kai heteros, hote enikôn. hoti duo paianas êidon hoi palaioi, pro men tou polemou tôi Arei, meta de ton polemon tôi Apollôni. to de hôs epiploun legei Thoukudidês, anti tou hôs pros to arxai ton polemon.
[1] = Eudemus 164b.16 Niese, Synagoge, Photius pi12 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius pi44. The headword, accusative plural (cf. pi 837), is apparently quoted from somewhere, but not from the passages referred to in the next two paragraphs.
[2] Derived from scholia to Thucydides 4.43.3, where there occurs not the headword but a related aorist participle, paiani/santes. For Enyalios cf. epsilon 1498.
[3] Derived from scholia to Thucydides 1.50.5, with the introduction of a slight error in the quotation of Thucydides: w(s e)pi/ploun ("as they were sailing forth"), for the original w(s e)s e)pi/ploun ("as for the sailing forth").
B. Niese, ed. (1922) ”Excerpta ex Eudemi codice Parisino n. 2635“, Philologus, suppl. 15.
