Headword: Ῥῆσος
Adler number: rho,146
Translated headword: Rhesos, Rhesus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
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.
Notes:
After the initial generic gloss, the body of the entry confusingly combines material on two different individuals, only the second of them called Rhesos.
