{Meaning] the son of Agron.
Greek Original:
*)agrwni/dhs: o( *)/agrwnos pai=s.
A common form of Greek patronymic. This particular one is attested only here.
For Agron himself there is more than one possible identification. Perhaps he is the Illyrian king of the C3 BCE (Polybius 2.2-4; Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 10.439E-440A [10.54 Kaibel]), whose son was Pinnes (Cassius Dio 12.49.3, etc.); alternatively he is the Agron mentioned in Herodotus 1.7, founder of the Heraclid dynasty in Sardis.
