Headword: Αἰακίδης
Adler number: alphaiota,5
Translated headword: Aiakides, Aeacides
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the son of Aeacus.
Greek Original:
Αἰακίδης: ὁ τοῦ Αἰακοῦ υἱός.
Likewise in other lexica and grammars
Homer uses this word twice in this case (nominative), both times as a patronymic, i.e. in reference to Aeacus' son Peleus (e.g. Iliad 16.15: web address 1). However, in the oblique cases, including the genitive Αἰακίδαο (e.g. Iliad 9.184: web address 2) it almost always refers to Peleus' son, Aeacus' grandson, Achilles; thus a papponymic (see alpha 1276 and the note there).
For the gloss cf. scholia to Iliad 16.15 (above); ps.-Herodian, Epimerismi 26.5.
