Adler number: nu,43
Translated headword: Nasamon's
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A proper name.[1]
Nasamon [is] a proper name, giving rise to [the plural] Nasamones, a Libyan people.[2]

Νασαμῶνος: ὄνομα κύριον. ὄνομα κύριον ὁ Νασαμῶν, ἐξ οὗ Νασαμῶνες, ἔθνος Λιβύης.
Notes:
[1] Here in the genitive case, evidently quoted from somewhere; probably from Herodotus 4.172.2, on which see further, next note.
[2] From Stephanus of Byzantium s.v. Nasamones. (He is explicit that Nasamon was an actual individual, but this is probably no more than a careless reading of Herodotus 4.172.2, where Νασαμῶνος ἀνδρός means a generic 'Nasamonian man'.) For their location see Barrington Atlas maps 37 and 38.
