Headword: Κολωνέτας
Adler number: kappa,1961
Translated headword: Kolonetes, Colonetes
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
This is what they used to call men for hire, since they took up a position by the kolonos[1] which is near the agora; where the shrines of Herakles and of Eurysakes are. This kolonos used to be called "of-the-agora". There was another kolonos next to the shrine of Poseidon; this one would be "of-the-horsemen".
Greek Original:
Κολωνέτας: οὕτως ὠνόμαζον τοὺς μισθωτούς, ἐπειδὴ περὶ τὸν κολωνὸν εἱστήκεσαν, ὅς ἐστι πλησίον τῆς ἀγορᾶς: ἔνθα τὸ Ἡφαιστεῖον καὶ τὸ Εὐρυσάκιόν ἐστιν. ἐκαλεῖτο δὲ ὁ κολωνὸς οὗτος ἀγοραῖος. ἦν δὲ καὶ ἕτερος κολωνὸς πρὸς τὸ τοῦ Ποσειδῶνος ἱερόν: οὗτος δ' ἂν εἴη ὁ τῶν ἱππέων.
Notes:
The second location mentioned here, Kolonos Hippios, is the Kleisthenic deme Kolonos, on which see bibliography below.
