Headword: Παιανιεῖς
Adler number: pi,839
Translated headword: Paianieis
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Paianieis] and Paionidai. Two demes of Paianieis are in the Pandionid tribe [sc. in Athens]; as Diodorus says, they are called Lower and Upper Paiania.[1] [sc. He also says that] the demesman of each deme is called, similarly, a Paianian. These are different from the Paionidai. This is a deme of the Leontid [tribe].
Greek Original:
Παιανιεῖς καὶ Παιονίδαι: δῆμοι διττοί εἰσι Παιανίων τῆς Πανδιονίδος φυλῆς, ὡς Διόδωρος καλεῖσθαί φησι Παιανιαίαν καθύπερθεν καὶ Παιανίαι ὑπένερθεν. τὸν δὲ δημότην ἑκατέρου δήμου καλεῖσθαι ὁμοίως Παιανιέα. διαφέρουσι δὲ οὗτοι τῶν Παιανίδων. δῆμος δέ ἐστι καὶ οὗτος τῆς Λεοντίδος.
Notes:
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., commenting on the demotikon Paianieus in Aeschines 3.51 and going on to cite other material. See also Photius, Lexicon pi13 Theodoridis, and cf. already Hesychius pi45.
[1] (The lexicographers' 'as', ὡς , probably needs emending to οὕς , as several scholars have noted, i.e. 'the ones which Diodorus says are called etc.'.) This is not Diodorus Siculus, the historian, but D. the Periegete, C4/3 BCE. (See generally FGrH 372: the present passage is F13 there).
