Headword: Λύκειον
Adler number: lambda,801
Translated headword: Lykeion, Lyceum
Vetting Status: high
A gymnasium at Athens, where before the war it seemed a good idea to to exercise[1] -- for prior to the sorties certain armed parades used to occur in the Lykeion, because of its proximity to the city, and displays of the men who were especially warlike.
Greek Original:
Λύκειον: γυμνάσιον Ἀθήνησιν, ὅπου πρὸ τοῦ πολέμου ἐδόκει γυμνάζεσθαι, πρὸ γὰρ τῶν ἐξόδων ἐξοπλίσεις τινὲς ἐγίνοντο ἐν τῷ Λυκείῳ, διὰ τὸ παρακεῖσθαι τῇ πόλει, καὶ ἀποδείξεις τῶν μᾶλλον πολεμικῶν ἀνδρῶν.
See also lambda 802. The present entry derives from the scholia to Aristophanes, Peace 356 (web address 1). For the Lykeion as a parade-ground cf. Xenophon, Hellenica 1.1.33.
[1] The phraseology is slightly different in the scholion: ἐδόκουν rather than the Suda's ἐδόκει .
