Headword: *stwi+koi/
Adler number: sigma,1150
Translated headword: Stoics
Vetting Status: high
Zeno of Kition used to recite his discourses while pacing up and down the Painted Stoa [sc. in Athens], also [called the Stoa] of Peisianax, later named after the painting of the artist Polygnotos. Under the 30, 1400 citizens were killed in it. This then was where, henceforth, people came to hear him; and accordingly "Stoics" was the name both for them and for his own followers, who had hitherto been called Zenonians.

From Diogenes Laertius 7.5.
For this Stoa cf. generally zeta 79, pi 1469, sigma 1126. On the victims of the Thirty (404/3) see the sources collected in P. Krentz, The Thirty in Athens (Ithaca NY 1982) 79 with n.30. That all of them were killed in the Stoa is most improbable.
