A proper name.
[Rhesios(sic) was] a general of the Byzantines, who had his residence in front of the city in a spot known as the Rhesion, now celebrated for the house of the great martyr Theodore.[1]
[Rhesus] came as an ally of the Trojans, camped in the plain in front of the city, and met a sad death; for during the night Diomedes [Author, Myth] and Odysseus murdered him.[2]

After the initial generic gloss, the body of the entry confusingly combines material on two different individuals, only the second of them called Rhesos.
