Headword: *eu)patri/dai
Adler number: epsilon,3642
Translated headword: Eupatridae, Eupatridai, Eupatrids, well-born
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning those] of good family.
Greek Original:
*eu)patri/dai: eu)genei=s.
Nominative plural (masculine), with same glossing in other lexica; evidently quoted from somewhere (perhaps Euripides, Alcestis 920).
The headword (which literally means 'well-fathered ones') can be either lower- or upper-case, i.e. used either generically or with application to the hereditary aristocracy of a particular city, usually Athens. For the Athenian Eupatridai see in brief John Davies in OCD(4) s.v.; more fully e.g. Robert Parker, Athenian Religion (1996) 60-65 and 323-324.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; history; politics; religion; tragedy
