A proper name.
[Rhesios(sic) was] a general of the Byzantines, who had his residence in front of the city in a spot known as the Rhesion, now celebrated for the house of the great martyr Theodore.[1] [Rhesus] came as an ally of the Trojans, camped in the plain in front of the city, and met a sad death; for during the night Diomedes [Author, Myth] and Odysseus murdered him.[2]
Greek Original:
Ῥῆσος: ὄνομα κύριον. στρατηγὸς τῶν Βυζαντίων, τὰς οἰκήσεις ἔχων πρὸ τῆς πόλεως ἐν τόπῳ ἐπιλεγομένῳ Ῥησίῳ, ἔνθα νῦν ὁ οἶκος τοῦ μεγάλου μάρτυρος Θεοδώρου γνωρίζεται, ἦλθεν εἰς συμμαχίαν τῶν Τρώων καὶ καταλύσας ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ τῷ πρὸ τῆς πόλεως κειμένῳ ἀτυχῶς ἀπήλλαξε: διὰ νυκτὸς γὰρ Διομήδης καὶ Ὀδυσσεὺς τοῦτον κατασφάζουσι.
After the initial generic gloss, the body of the entry confusingly combines material on two different individuals, only the second of them called Rhesos.

[2] See generally OCD(4) s.v. Rhesus, the Thracian ally of the Trojans whose story is told in Homer, Iliad 10.
