Adler number: epsilon,2895
Translated headword: Erasinades, Erasinides

A proper name. He was a general.
Greek Original:
Ἐρασινάδης: ὄνομα κύριον. στρατηγὸς δὲ ἦν.
Notes:
Despite the Suda's spelling 'Erasinades', repeated in the headword of epsilon 3234, this is almost certain to be Erasinides (sic), one of the ten Athenian generals for the year 406/5 (during which they were held culpable for the Athenian fatalities at the battle of Arginousai); see Develin 178-9. (A Corinthian commander of the same name in 414 is mentioned in some of the mss of Thucydides 7.7.1, and printed in some modern editions, but the variant reading Thrasonides is preferable; see Hornblower 554.)
Adler suggested that the entry comes from the scholia to Aristophanes, Frogs 1196, where he is mentioned (epsilon 3234). Alternatively [DW], from scholia to one of his several mentions in book 1 of Xenophon's Hellenica (between 1.5.16 and 1.7.29); see also e.g. Xenophon, Memorabilia 1.1.18, Lysias 21.8.
