Adler number: pi,2575
Translated headword: both ministers and attendants
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"Eurymedon, as minister of Deo's mysteries, was once about to indict Aristotle [for impiety]".
Greek Original:
Πρόπολοί τε καὶ θεραπευταί. μέλλων Εὐρυμέδων πότ' Ἀριστοτέλη γράψασθαι, Δηοῦς μύστιδος ὢν πρόπολος.
Notes:
The headword phrase (not identified by Adler) quotes Philo Judaeus, de decalogo 66. (For 'minister' cf. pi 2571, pi 2573, pi 2574; for 'attendant' cf. theta 228, theta 228.)
The body of the entry, connected with the headword only by dint of using the word propolos, comes from Diogenes Laertius' couplets about Aristotle (DL 5.8). For the episode, from 323 BCE, cf. Athenaeus, Deipnosophistai 15.696A-697B (15.51-52 Kaibel). Deo is Demeter (delta 483).
