*ai)/nion kai\ *ai)ni/ous: po/leis. sune/baine de\ tou\s *ai)ni/ous pa/lai me\n stasia/zein, prosfa/tws de\ a)poneu/ein tou\s me\n pro\s *eu)me/nh, tou\s de\ pro\s *makedoni/an.
[1] Derived from Harpokration s.v. Ainious, i.e. accusative plural, as again here, from Demosthenes 23.119. (The entry also quotes Homer [Iliad 4.520] and cites Ephorus FGrH 70 F39.) But only one city is involved: Ainos/Aenus, in Thrace, whose citizens were Ainioi/Aenii: see alphaiota 225.
[2] Quoted from alpha 3451: Polybius 22.6.7 (preserved only in the Suda), on events in Thrace in the 180s BCE.
