Headword: Ὁμολώϊος
Adler number: omicron,275
Translated headword: Homoloios
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[An epithet of] Zeus in Thebes and in other Boeotian city-states and in Thessaly; [the name comes] from the expoundress[1] Homoloa, the daughter of Enyis; she was sent as expoundress to Delphi, as Aristophanes [says] in book 2 of his History of Thebes.[2] But Istros in the twelfth book of his Collection [says that the name arose] because of the fact that amongst Aeolians concord and peacefulness is called homolon.[3] There is also a Demeter Homoloia in Thebes.
Greek Original:
Ὁμολώϊος: Ζεὺς ἐν Θήβαις καὶ ἐν ἄλλαις πόλεσι Βοιωτικαῖς καὶ ἐν Θεσσαλίᾳ: ἀπὸ Ὁμολῴας προφήτιδος, τῆς Ἐνυέως: ἣν προφῆτιν εἰς Δελφοὺς πεμφθῆναι, ὡς Ἀριστοφάνης ἐν β# Θηβαϊκῶν. Ἴστρος δὲ ἐν τῇ δωδεκάτῃ τῆς Συναγωγῆς, διὰ τὸ παρ' Αἰολεῦσι τὸ ὁμονοητικὸν καὶ εἰρηνικὸν ὅμολον λέγεσθαι. ἔστι δὲ καὶ Δημήτηρ Ὁμολωί̈α ἐν Θήβαις.
