Vetting Status: high
"Following the tyrant by his tracks and into [the?] Orgon, he settles on pre-emptively seizing those of the plains both easily accessible and fit for horses".
Greek Original:
Ἐνιζάνει: ὁ δὲ κατ' ἴχνος ἑπόμενος τῷ τυράννῳ καὶ ἐς τὸν Ὀργῶνά ποτε ἐνιζάνει τῷ προκαταλαβεῖν τὰ εὐέφοδά τε καὶ ἱππήλατα τῶν πεδίων.
The quotation, from which the headword is presumably extracted, is unidentifiable. For the verb cf. epsilon 1340.
The Suda text printed here by Adler has Ὀργῶνά ποτε ; however, as she noted, the version in ps.-Zonaras (favoured by Gaisford) is Ὀργῶνα ποταμόν , "into the river Orgon". (The ed. pr. opted for emendation: ἀγῶνά ποτε , "into a contest".) No such river is otherwise attested, though Stephanus of Byzantium registers an island "of Etruria" called Orgon.
