Headword: Ἠετιώνεια
Adler number: eta,132
Translated headword: Eetioneia, Eetionia
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The other headland of the Peiraieus[1] used to be so called, after Eetion, the man who gained possession of the land.
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] 'Eetionian lifestyle', [meaning] that of Eetion.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἠετιώνεια: οὕτως ἐκαλεῖτο ἡ ἑτέρα τοῦ Πειραιέως ἄκρα ἀπὸ τοῦ κατακτησαμένου τὴν γῆν Ἠετίωνος. καὶ Ἠετιώνειος δίαιτα, ἡ τοῦ Ἠετίωνος.
Notes:
The first and principal part of this entry is abridged from Harpokration s.v., commenting on Antiphon fr. 5 Sauppe and going on to cite Philochorus (FGrH 328 F72) and Thucydides (8.90-92).
[1] (Also in Stephanus of Byzantium and elsewhere.) Meaning "other" than the Akte peninsula; the northerly and lesser of the two promontories which enclosed the Great Harbour.
[2] Same material, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. The phrase is otherwise unattested, and which Eetion it refers to cannot be determined. (The father of Andromache, for instance, also bore that name; cf. eta 131.)
