Headword: *tritogenh/s
Adler number: tau,1020
Translated headword: Tritogenes
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Another name for] Athena. Either because she came forth from the belly and the womb and the head of Zeus; or because she was begotten by the river Triton in Libya, [of one?] wasting away[1] as Athenians believe; or because she was begotten third after Artemis and Apollo; or since Athanes[2] call the head 'triton'; or since she was born beside Triton; or the cause is from trei=n ["to flee"] and to be cautious; or [because she is] generative; or because she bathed in Triton, the river of Libya.

[1] In ms G, Adler reports, a lacuna follows this participle; M has a note zh/tei, indicating a textual difficulty. Kuster and Naber add h)\ tri/th| before fqi/nontos, i.e. "or on the 28th (day of the month)," accepted by Theodoridis.
[2] In Photius Theodoridis prints Porson's emendation *)aqama=nes "the Athamans" (a tribal people of NW Greece).
