Headword: Logoisin Hermodôros emporeuetai
Adler number: lambda,661
Translated headword: Hermodoros is a shipper in speeches
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Hermodoros became a student of Plato, took his collected works and was selling them in Sicily.
Greek Original:
Logoisin Hermodôros emporeuetai: ho Hermodôros, akroatês genomenos Platôni, tous hup' autou suntetheimenous logous komizôn eis Sikelian epôlei.
Notes:
The headword phrase is a line of iambic verse, evidently from a comedy of the first half of the C4 BCE (Comica adespota fr. 269 Kock, now 937 K.-A.); cf. Zenobius 5.6.
For Hermodoros of Syracuse see Diogenes Laertius 1.2, 1.8, 2.106, 3.6 (but not 9.2, an earlier Ephesian homonym).
