Translated headword: Lykeion, Lyceum

A gymnasium at Athens, where before the war it seemed a good idea to to exercise[1] -- for prior to the sorties certain armed parades used to occur in the Lykeion, because of its proximity to the city, and displays of the men who were especially warlike.
Greek Original:

See also lambda 802. The present entry derives from the scholia to Aristophanes, Peace 356 (web address 1). For the Lykeion as a parade-ground cf. Xenophon, Hellenica 1.1.33.
[1] The phraseology is slightly different in the scholion: e)do/koun rather than the Suda's e)do/kei.
