Headword: *titani/da gh=n
Adler number: tau,677
Translated headword: Titanic land; land of Titans
Vetting Status: high
Some [sc. say this means] the whole [earth], but others [say it means] Attica. [It is so-called] from Titanios, one of the Titans, rather ancient, who lived near Marathon; he alone did not make war on the gods, as Philochorus [writes] in Tetrapolis, and Istros in [book] 1 of Attic Histories.[1] [Also attested is the phrase] "to cry Titans"; for they used to help humans, listening to them, as Nicander [writes] in [book] 1 of Aetolian Histories.[2] They were considered to be among the Priapic gods.[3]

Same entry in Photius (tau329 Theodoridis); similar one in other lexica, and see also several of the paroemiographers. The headword phrase, cross-referenced at tau 686, is in the accusative case and must be quoted from somewhere.
