[1] Aelian fr. 55a Domingo-Forasté (52 Hercher). For Jason (Iason), tyrant of Thessalian Pherai in the first half of the C4 BCE, see generally OCD(4) s.v. Jason(2). (He does not have his own Suda entry, unless iota 49 was intended to be one.) As Westlake 98-99 notes, the notion that Jason was planning to seize the Delphic treasures, treated with proper caution in Xenophon (Hellenica 6.4.30), has by Aelian's time come to be established fact.
