Demosthenes in the [speech] Against Timokrates [mentions it].[1] It is a city, a colony of Mendaians.
Greek Original:
Ἤων: Δημοσθένης ἐν τῷ κατὰ Τιμοκράτους. πόλις ἐστί, Μενδαίων ἀποικία.
The Suda gives the form Eon, though Eion is more commonly seen.
This is not the well-attested Eion on the R.Strymon but a place apparently to the west of it, somewhere in Chalkidike: see Hornblower 157-8. Confusion between the two is already evident in Harpokration s.v., from which the present entry derives.
Besides Demosthenes, Harpok. cites Thucydides 4.7 (on the Mende connection; cf. generally mu 593) and Theopompus FGrH 115 F51.
[1] The title of the speech is a mistake (in all lexica) for 'Against Aristokrates', i.e. not Demosthenes 24, but Demosthenes 23.199 (web address 1).
