Headword: Ἰάσων
Adler number: iota,53
Translated headword: Jason, Iason
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Of Argos [Myth, Place]. Historian, younger than Plutarch of Chaeronea.[1] Grammarian. He wrote On Greece in 4 books: this comprises (1) the ancient history of Greece, (2) events after the Persian wars, (3) events in the reign of Alexander until his death, (4) and events down to the capture of Athens by Antipater, the father of Cassander.
Greek Original:
Ἰάσων, Ἀργεῖος, ἱστορικός, νεώτερος Πλουτάρχου τοῦ Χαιρωνέως, γραμματικός. ἔγραψε περὶ τῆς Ἑλλάδος βιβλία δ#: ἔχει δὲ ἀρχαιολογίαν Ἑλλάδος καὶ τὰ ἀπὸ τῶν Μηδικῶν τά τε κατ' Ἀλέξανδρον ἕως τελευτῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ μέχρι τῆς Ἀθηναίων ἁλώσεως, τῆς γενομένης ὑπὸ Ἀντιπάτρου τοῦ πατρὸς Κασάνδρου.
Notes:
See generally RE Iason(12) and esp. Jacoby at FGrH 94. Jacoby declines to identify this work with the 4-volume Life of Greece credited to Jason of Nysa in the preceding lemma (iota 52). He also argues that a late grammarian and a much earlier historian - whose quadripartite period of coverage, as we are told, did not extend beyond 322 BC - have been conflated here.
[1] pi 1793.
