There are two demes in Attica [sc. with this name], said in the neuter.[1] They say that they are so called because the place[s] never had habitation, but were isolated; for the ancients used to call isolation "oion". There is Oion Kerameikon of the tribe Leontis, [2] and Oion Dekeleikon of Hippothontis.[3] The demesman from either used to be called "from-Oion". But others were the so-called "from-Oe", as stated before.[4]
Greek Original:
Οἶον: δῆμοι εἰσὶν ἐν τῇ Ἀττικῇ διττοί, οὐδετέρως λεγόμενοι. καλεῖσθαι δέ φασιν αὐτοὺς οὕτως διὰ τὸ μηδαμῶς οἰκητὸν τόπον ἔχειν, ἀλλὰ μεμονῶσθαι: τὸ γὰρ μόνον οἶον ἐκάλουν οἱ ἀρχαῖοι. ἔστι δὲ τὸ μὲν Κεραμεικὸν Οἶον τῆς Λεοντίδος φυλῆς, τὸ δὲ Δεκελεικὸν Οἶον τῆς Ἱπποθοωντίδος. οἱ δὲ δημόται ἑκατέρωθεν ἐλέγοντο ἐξ Οἴου. ἄλλοι δὲ ἦσαν οἱ λεγόμενοι Οἰῆθεν, ὡς προείρηται.
