Vetting Status: high
In Thucydides [this means] a pledge, given to secure a peace.[1]
In reference to treaties.
Aelian [writes]: "he steals the bell and gives it first to his companion as a sign of friendship and a pledge."[2]
Hostages [homeroi] are those given on the occasion of an agreement; for homerosai means 'to agree'. Theopompus says that [the verb] homerein is used among the Achaeans in the sense 'follow'; hence they say that those given in accordance with the terms of an agreement are called homeroi.[3]

[1] cf. the scholia to Thucydides 1.82.4, where the headword occurs (accusative case, as again here).
[2] Aelian fr. 73a Domingo-Forasté (part of 70 Hercher).
[3] FGrH 115 F300 (where the reading 'Achaeans', *)axaioi=s, is sometimes emended to 'ancients', a)rxai/ois). This final part of the entry abridges the final part of Harpokration s.v. o(mhreu/ontas; see already omicron 245.
