Headword: Αἴνικος
Adler number: alphaiota,222
Translated headword: Eunikos, Eunicus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
An Athenian comic poet.[1] He belongs to the Old Comedy. His plays [include] Anteia.[2] There is also a sophist Ainios,[3] [amongst] whose books [is] Hucksters.
Greek Original:
Αἴνικος, Ἀθηναῖος, κωμικός. ἔστι δὲ τῆς ἀρχαίας κωμῳδίας. δράματα αὐτοῦ Ἄντεια. ἔστι δὲ καὶ Αἴνιος σοφιστής, οὗτινος βιβλία αἱ Μετάβολοι.
Notes:
[1] His name is transmitted as Ainikos both here and in ps.-Zonaras, but it should be Eunikos (Pollux 10.100; Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 13.567C (13.21 Kaibel), who mentions the play mentioned here -- see further, next note). See generally Kassel-Austin, PCG V pp. 278-279.
[2] For the name cf. generally alpha 2501, alpha 2644 (name of a courtesan). E's play, however, may (despite Athenaeus' assumption: see previous note) have been on a mythological subject: Anteia was an alternative name for Stheneboea (sigma 515).
[3] Here again the name may be faulty: one manuscript has Aineios.
