Headword: Ῥησίαρχος
Adler number: rho,143
Translated headword: speech-leader
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he] who will state[1] the oracles. [Used] in Epicharmus.[2] He has said [this] to those[3] contrary to the decree; or, as Asclepiades [writes] in the 6th [book] of Tragic Subjects,[4] that[5] he has become best at speaking the truth. But another also became [this].
Greek Original:
Ῥησίαρχος: ὃς ἐρέει τὰ θέσφατα. παρ' Ἐπιχάρμῳ. τοῖς παρὰ τὴν ῥῆσιν εἴρηκεν: ἤ, ὡς Ἀσκληπιάδης ἐν #2# Τραγῳδουμένων, ἄριστον αὐτὸν γεγονέναι ἀλήθειαν εἰπεῖν. ἐγένετο δὲ καὶ ἕτερος.
= Photius, Lexicon rho103 Theodoridis, where however the headword is ῥησός and the glossing begins ἀρχός ὃς κτλ . See also Hesychius rho272.
[1] Hesychius reads ῥέει "flows"; Photius has αἱρέσει "by choice" (now obelized by Theodoridis). Kaibel [cf. next note] conjectured ἀναιρεῖ "takes up, declares (an oracle)." M. Schmidt suggested χρέει "delivers an oracle."
[2] Epicharmus fr. 205 Kaibel (206 K.-A.).
[3] Here the learned owner of ms M has written λείπει , "something is lacking," and G has a lacuna. Hesychius reads ἤτοι "or else" (rightly, in Theodoridis' view).
[4] Asclepiades of Tragilus [C4 BCE: OCD(4) s.v. Asclepiades(1)] FGrH 12 F5; see further, next note.
[5] Jacoby's apparatus in FGrH tentatively suggests inserting διὰ τὸ before ἄριστον "because of his becoming best ...".
