Translated headword: at Sphettos
Vetting Status: high
Sphettos [is] a Demosthenes of [sc. the Athenian tribe] Akamantis.
Greek Original:
*sfhttoi=: *dhmosqe/nhs th=s *)akamanti/dos o( *sfhtto/s.
For Sphettos see already sigma 1743. The present headword, as transmitted, is its locative, but this is a corruption: the immediate source is Harpokration s.v. *sfhtto/s (sic), a gloss on the appearance of the deme name in Isaeus fr. 17 Sauppe. And of course "Demosthenes" -- not a member of this deme -- was never cited here: the word is simply "demos", accidentally expanded.
