Headword: *tro/mhs
Adler number: tau,1047
Translated headword: Tromes
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Genitive] *tro/mhtos. Among the rude names that Demosthenes calls Aeschines is record-porer; he says that he is the son of a man called Tromes, an elementary schoolmaster.
Greek Original:
*tro/mhs, *tro/mhtos: *dhmosqe/nhs kai\ a)/lla skw/ptei to\n *ai)sxi/nhn kai\ grammatoku/fwna: o(\n kai\ ui(o\n ei)=nai/ fhsin o)no/mati me\n *tro/mhtos, didaska/lou de\ tw=n prw/twn gramma/twn.
Note:
See already, for Demosthenes 18.209, at gamma 423. It is earlier in the speech (18.129-131) that he mentions "Tromes"; this, he alleges, was the name of the father of Aeschines while he was a slave, not yet the Athenian citizen Atrometos. See web address 1.
