Headword: Ῥάμνος
Adler number: rho,32
Translated headword: Rhamnous, Rhamnus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
In reference to the wise and well-regarded.[1] For Rhamno(u)s [is] a deme of Attica,[2] in which Antiphon flourished in rhetoric.[3] Since many wished to emulate him, they left a proverb [relating] to his life, which results in fine people being called Rhamnoi.
Greek Original:
Ῥάμνος: ἐπὶ τῶν σοφῶν καὶ ἐλλογίμων. Ῥάμνος γὰρ δῆμος Ἀττικῆς, ἐν ᾗ καὶ Ἀντιφῶν ἤκμασε κατὰ ῥητορικήν: ὃν πολλοὶ μιμήσασθαι. θέλοντες παροιμίαν ἔλιπον τῷ βίῳ, ὥστε τοὺς καλοὺς Ῥάμνους καλεῖν.
Notes:
An entry of poor quality: besides the incorrect headword (see n. 1) there is some dubious grammar and some odd phraseology.
[1] See again under rho 33 (end). It confirms the view of Scaliger and others -- probable enough anyway -- that the headword of the present entry, transmitted as Rhamnos, should have been Rhamnousios ("a Rhamnousian"). (The end of the entry, correspondingly, should be Rhamn(nousi)oi.)
[2] A fortress-deme (in the tribe Aiantis) on the NE coast; it has left extensive remains. See generally J.S. Traill, The Political Organization of Attica (Princeton 1975) 53, and again Demos and Trittys (Toronto 1986) 138; D. Whitehead, The Demes of Attica (Princeton 1986) index s.v.; OCD4 Rhamnus. See also rho 33.
[3] See generally alpha 2745.
