Name of a rural place, called after Paris the [man] also [known as] Alexandros;[1] for his father Priam sent him there to be raised; previously the place was called Amandros.[2] There Alexandros spent 30 years, acquired a good nature, and was fully educated in Greek wisdom. He also issued a discourse in praise of Aphrodite, saying that she was greater than Athena and Hera; for Aphrodite, he said, was that desire out of which are born all bad things for men.[3] Hence arose the story that Paris made a judgement between Pallas and Hera and Aphrodite and gave Aphrodite the apple, i.e. the victory. He also declaimed a hymn to her, the so-called Kestos. They write that this was the cause of the war. When the 30 years were completed, his father[4] summoned him and sent him to [perform] sacrifices; and when he went to Sparta and found Helen there he abducted her.

This material is paralleled in John of Antioch, Georgius Cedrenus, et al: see Adler's note.
[1] This Parion is not the (later) polis of that name, which according to Stephanus of Byzantium had a different eponym (Parios, son of Iasion).
[2] Differently in the other sources, e.g. Mandro in Cedrenus.
[3] Jonathan Toup (1713-1785) corrected this, surely rightly, to 'all fine things', a change of just one consonant in the Greek.
[4] Priam (pi 2274).
