Greek display:    

Headword: Μυροκλῆς
Adler number: mu,1447
Translated headword: Myrokles, Myrocles, Moirokles, Moerocles
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A Salaminian as to genos; [one] of those among [the] Athenians not from those who had been in political life.
Greek Original:
Μυροκλῆς: Σαλαμίνιος τὸ γένος, τῶν παρ' Ἀθηναίων οὐκ ἄπο πολιτευσαμένων.
Notes:
An entry textually garbled, both here and in Photius (mu608 Theodoridis), but it can be corrected in the light of its more distant source, Harpokration. The authentic version of the name is Moirokles/Moerocles, and the second half of the entry should read τῶν παρ ἀΘηναίοις οὐκ ἀφανῶς πολιτευσαμένων , "[he was one] of those among [the] Athenians who had engaged in public life in no inconspicuous way".
On the genos of the Salaminioi - much the best-attested of the Athenian "clans" - see generally Robert Parker, Athenian Religion (Oxford 1996) 308-316.
