Headword: Μιλτιάδῃ καὶ Ἀριστείδῃ ἐῴκει
Adler number: mu,1068
Translated headword: worthy of Miltiades and Aristeides
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Both these men were very great. For Aristeides was called 'just' and Miltiades was a general; he served as general at Marathon.[1] The poet[sc. Aristophanes] makes mention of the trophy at Marathon because in the case of the other successes against the barbarians all of Greece was victorious, but the Athenians alone won the victory of Marathon.
Greek Original:
Μιλτιάδῃ καὶ Ἀριστείδῃ ἐῴκει: ἀμφότεροι οὗτοι ἄριστοι ἐγένοντο. ὁ γὰρ Ἀριστείδης δίκαιος ἐκλήθη, ὁ δὲ Μιλτιάδης στρατηγός: ὃς ἐν Μαραθῶνι ἐστρατήγησε. τοῦ δὲ ἐν Μαραθῶνι τροπαίου μέμνηται ὁ ποιητής, διότι τὰ μὲν ἄλλα κατορθώματα κοινῇ πᾶσα ἡ Ἑλλὰς πεποίηκε κατὰ τῶν βαρβάρων, τὸ δὲ ἐν Μαραθῶνι μόνοι Ἀθηναῖοι κατώρθωσαν.
