Abridged from Harpokration s.v., where Homer (Odyssey 8.529) is quoted for the final, etymological point.
This modification in the name dates from the late C6 BCE, when the reforms of Kleisthenes in Athens appropriated the name Boutadai (see beta 466, and cf. epsilon 3283) for one of the demes; the "clan" (genos) then became the Eteoboutadai.
