Which bearer of this name has prompted the entry is unclear. The father of Sogenes of Aigina [Myth, Place], the victorious "boy" athlete commemorated c.467 BCE in Pindar's Seventh Nemean Ode, is Thearion; the name appears first in the genitive (line 7) and later in the nominative (line 58). But note also e.g. the baker Th. of Athens (early C4 BCE), mentioned by Plato and in comedy.
