[Paianieis] and Paionidai. Two demes of Paianieis are in the Pandionid tribe [sc. in Athens]; as Diodorus says, they are called Lower and Upper Paiania.[1] [sc. He also says that] the demesman of each deme is called, similarly, a Paianian. These are different from the Paionidai. This is a deme of the Leontid [tribe].

[1] (The lexicographers' 'as', w(s, probably needs emending to ou(/s, as several scholars have noted, i.e. 'the ones which Diodorus says are called etc.'.) This is not Diodorus Siculus, the historian, but D. the Periegete, C4/3 BCE. (See generally FGrH 372: the present passage is F13 there).
