Headword: Ἀγνώνειος
Adler number: alpha,285
Translated headword: Hagnoneian, Hagnonian
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The son of [H]agnon.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] [H]agnonides.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἀγνώνειος: ὁ τοῦ Ἄγνωνος παῖς. καὶ Ἀγνωνίδης.
Notes:
[1] An entry seemingly generated by Thucydides 5.11.1, which records the demolition in 422 BCE of the "Hagnonian buildings" of Amphipolis, i.e. those buildings associated with its Athenian founder Hagnon, father of Theramenes (theta 342, etc.). The scholiast to the passage glosses the adjective, there in the neuter plural, as "those of (H)agnon". Here it is nominative singular; but even so it cannot have been an authentic way to refer to Hagnon's son.
[2] Athenian political figure of the third quarter of the C4 BCE, implicated in the "Harpalos Affair" (see generally alpha 4000).
