Headword: *dou/lwn po/lis
Adler number: delta,1423
Translated headword: slaves' city
Vetting Status: high
A proverb;[1] [sc. also a city] in Libya:[2] Ephorus in [volume] 5 [mentions it].[3] Also another [city] of sacred slaves, in which one man is free.[4] There is also, in Crete, Slave-city [Doulopolis], as Sosicrates [says] in [Book] 1 of his Cretan Matters.[5] There is also, somewhere in Thrace, Scoundrel-city [Poneropolis], which Philip allegedly founded having gathered there those who had been charged with some sort of knavery: informants, perjured witnesses, advocates and the other scoundrels, some two thousand in all; so [says] Theopompus in [Book] 13 of his Histories of Philip.[6]

Likewise in Photius; and cf. already Hesychius delta2258, citing Eupolis (fr. 197 Kock, now 212 Kassel-Austin).
[1] Bernhardy felt that "a proverb" (paroimi/a) was out of place here, and suggested emending to paroiki/a ("a settlement"). The headword phrase does, nevertheless, appear in several of the paroemiographers.
[2] This supplement is required by the equivalent entry in Stephanus of Byzantium s.v. See also n.3.
[3] Ephorus FGrH 70 F50.
[4] From Stephanus of Byzantium; cf. n.2.
[5] Sosicrates FGrH 461 F2.
[6] Theopompus FGrH 115 F110. (But see under pi 2039 for the actual identity of 'Poneropolis'.)
