Headword: Αὐσονίων
Adler number: alpha,4461
Translated headword: of Ausonians
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] of Italians.[1]
Also [sc. attested are] Ausones, [meaning] the kings; [the term comes] from the [verb] αὔσω , [meaning] I dare. [So the name means] those daring everything by their ordinance.[2]
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] 'Ausonian main',[3] [meaning] the Sicilian sea; [named] from Auson, the son of Odysseus and Kalypso, who was king there.[4]
Greek Original:
Αὐσονίων: Ἰταλῶν. καὶ Αὔσονες, οἱ βασιλεῖς: παρὰ τὸ αὔσω, τὸ τολμῶ. οἱ πάντα ἐπιτολμῶντες τῷ προστάγματι. καὶ Αὐσόνιος πόντος, ἡ Σικελικὴ θάλασσα: ἀπὸ Αὔσονος, τοῦ Ὀδυσσέως καὶ Καλυψοῦς υἱοῦ ἐκεῖ βασιλεύσαντος.
Notes:
[1] Likewise in other lexica. The headword, genitive plural, must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps Oppian, Halieutica 2.676, where the scholia gloss 'Romans'.
[2] This odd material is unparalleled elsewhere.
[3] Strabo's preferred variant is Αὐσόνιον πέλαγος
[4] (Atlas and Kalypso, in other versions.) For this material cf. the scholia to Lykophron, Alexandra 702.
