Headword: *kimw/neia lei/yana
Adler number: kappa,1622
Translated headword: Kimoneian remains
Vetting Status: high
Also [sc. attested is the] Kimoneion, a shrine of Kimon.[1]
Greek Original:
*kimw/neia lei/yana. kai\ *kimw/neion, i(ero\n tou= *ki/mwnos.
For Kimon see generally kappa 1620, kappa 1621.
The present headword phrase (unglossed) seems to have been generated by Plutarch, Kimon 19.5: ta\ lei/yana au)tou= ... ta\ me/xri nu=n *kimw/neia prosagoreuo/mena.
On the Kimoneia (in Koile, a suburb of Athens just outside the Melite Gate) see A. Blamire, Plutarch: Life of Kimon (London 1989) 89-90, 165, 185. A comic poet (Kratinos fr. 151 Kock = 160 Kassel/Austin) had a ruder name for them: Kimonian ruins (ereipia).
[1] Otherwise unattested, and substantively dubious anyway, if we are meant to envisage one in Athens. See rather Plut. loc.cit., who claims that the Cypriots of Kition, where Kimon died, maintained a hero-cult of him.
