Adler number: lambda,144
Translated headword: Latins, Latini
Vetting Status: high
Those who are now [called] Romans; for Telephus the son of Heracles, who had the additional name Latinus, gave those who were of old called Cetii the new name Latini. These were again called Italians after one Italus who was ruling the region; but after Aeneas seized the west they were called Aeneadae. All the Romans after him changed their name, taking the name from Romulus.
Greek Original:
Λατῖνοι: οἱ νῦν Ῥωμαῖοι: Τήλεφος γὰρ υἱὸς Ἡρακλέους, ὁ ἐπικληθεὶς Λατῖνος, μετωνόμασε τοὺς πάλαι Κητίους λεγομένους Λατίνους. Ἰταλοὶ δὲ οὗτοι πάλιν προσηγορεύθησαν ἔκ τινος Ἰταλοῦ δυναστεύσαντος τῆς χώρας: Αἰνείου δὲ καταλαβόντος τὴν δύσιν ἐκλήθησαν Αἰνεάδαι: μεθ' ὃν Ῥωμαῖοι πάντες μετωνομάσθησαν ἀπὸ Ῥωμύλου λαβόντες τὴν ἐπωνυμίαν.
cf. John Malalas 162.4 and George the Monk, Chronicon 41.5-8; see also T.J. Cornell in OCD(4) s.v. Latini.
