Headword: Σάβοι
Adler number: sigma,12
Translated headword: Saboi
Vetting Status: high
Demosthenes [in the speech] On Behalf of Ktesiphon [sc. mentions them].[1] Some say that Saboi is the term for those who are dedicated to Sabazios, that is to Dionysos, just as those [dedicated] to Bacchos [are] Bacchoi. They say that Sabazios and Dionysos are the same. Thus some also say[2] that the Greeks call the Bacchoi Saboi. But Mnaseas of Patrai[3] says that Sabazios is the son of Dionysos.
Greek Original:
Σάβοι: Δημοσθένης ὑπὲρ Κτησιφῶντος. οἱ μὲν Σάβους λέγεσθαι τοὺς τελουμένους τῷ Σαβαζίῳ, τουτέστι τῷ Διονύσῳ, καθάπερ τοὺς τῷ Βάκχῳ Βάκχους. τὸν αὐτὸν δὲ εἶναι Σαβάζιον καὶ Διόνυσόν φασιν. οὕτως δέ φησι καὶ τῶν Ἑλλήνων τινες τοὺς Βάκχους Σάβους καλεῖν. Μνασέας δὲ ὁ Πατρεὺς υἱὸν εἶναι φησὶ τοῦ Διονύσου Σαβάζιον.
