Headword: Ἐτεοβουτάδαι
Adler number: epsilon,3283
Translated headword: Eteoboutadai, Eteobutadae
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A very famous clan [amongst] Athenians, [named] after Boutos; [it is the body] from which the priests at Athens are appointed.[1]
The Eteoboutadai [are] descendants of Boutos the priest; for eteon indicates true.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐτεοβουτάδαι: γένος Ἀθηναίοις πολὺ λαμπρόν, ἀπὸ Βούτου: ἀφ' οὗ οἱ ἱερεῖς καθίσταντο Ἀθήνησιν. ὅτι οἱ Ἐτεοβουτάδαι ἀπόγονοι τοῦ Βούτου τοῦ ἱερέως. τὸ γὰρ ἐτεὸν ἀληθὲς δηλοῖ.
Notes:
Carelessly (see n.1) abridged from Harpokration s.v., itself generated by the mention of the Eteoboutadai in fr.38 Conomis of the C4 orator and statesmen Lycurgus (himself the most famous Eteoboutad). See also beta 466, beta 467.
[1] Too sweeping a generalisation. Harpok. was more precise, specifying the priestess of Athena Polias (but even he should have added the priest of Poseidon Erechtheus).
[2] From beta 467; and cf. epsilon 3285.
