Headword: *)aristai=os
Adler number: alpha,3898
Translated headword: Aristaios, Aristaeus
Vetting Status: high
[The name of] one of the Giants, [the one] who survived.[1]
But [sc. a different name is] Aristeus, [genitive] Aristeos.[2]
And Aristion likewise.[3] He is a Samian or Plataian, and, since a lad, a companion of Demosthenes; he was sent by him to Hephaistion for negotiations. Hyperides mentions him in the [speech] Against Demosthenes.[4]
Aristaios, the story goes, was the only Giant to survive on the Sicilian mountain called Etna; the fire of heaven did not reach him, nor did Etna crush him.[5]

[1] Aelian fr. 215b Domingo-Forasté (214 Hercher). On the mythological Giants and their battle with the Gods, see further at the end of the entry, (and OCD(4) pp.616).
[2] e.g. that of two Corinthian generals in Thucydides (1.29 [web address 1]; 1.60-65, 2.67).
[3] From this point, down to "...negotiations" the source becomes Harpokration, who cites Diyllos (FGrH 73F2) and Marsyas (FGrH 135F2) as sources.
[4] Hyperides, Against Demosthenes 20, apparently. See Whitehead [bibliog.] 419-421.
[5] Quoted from alphaiota 376.
