Adler number: omicron,219
Translated headword: Olympus, Olympos
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Son of Maion; a Mysian, a piper and a melic and elegiac poet, he became a pioneer of instrumental music [played] by pipes: a student and the beloved of Marsyas, a Satyr by lineage,[1] [who was himself] a pupil, and son, of Hyagnis.[2] Olympus flourished before the Trojan War, and the mountain in Mysia is named for him.[3]
Greek Original:
Ὄλυμπος, Μαίονος, Μυσός, αὐλητὴς καὶ ποιητὴς μελῶν καὶ ἐλεγείων, ἡγεμών τε γενόμενος τῆς κρουματικῆς μουσικῆς τῆς διὰ τῶν αὐλῶν: μαθητὴς καὶ ἐρώμενος Μαρσύου, τὸ γένος ὄντος Σατύρου, ἀκουστοῦ δὲ καὶ παιδὸς Ὑάγνιδος. γέγονε δὲ πρὸ τῶν Τρωϊκῶν ὁ Ὄλυμπος, ἐξ οὗ τὸ ὄρος τὸ ἐν Μυσίᾳ ὀνομάζεται.
Notes:
See also omicron 220 (cf. omicron 221), and generally M.L. West, Ancient Greek Music (Oxford 1992) 330-1 (and index s.v.).
The present entry's material has parallels in a scholion on Aristophanes, Knights 9 (cf. xi 117, xi 118) and elsewhere.

[2] See West loc.cit. (The name appears elsewhere as Agnis or Oiagnis.)
[3] Not, of course, 'the' Mount Olympus, in Balkan Greece, but one of its several homonyms in (present-day) Turkey.
