Headword: Ῥαριάς
Adler number: rho,50
Translated headword: Rharias
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[sc. An epithet of] Demeter; for Rharos had a son Keleos, and Keleos [had a son] Triptolemos. Rharos received Demeter, as she wandered about looking for Kore, into his house. In gratitude, Demeter taught Triptolemos, the grandson of Rharos, the farming of grain. And she provided him a chariot of winged serpents, traveling in which Triptolemos went all about the earth, teaching the farming of grain.
Greek Original:
Ῥαριάς: ἡ Δημήτηρ: Ῥάρος γὰρ ἔσχεν υἱὸν Κελεόν, Κελεὸς δὲ Τριπτόλεμον. ὁ δὲ Ῥάρος πλανωμένην τὴν Δήμητραν καὶ ζητοῦσαν τὴν Κόρην ὑπεδέξατο εἰς τὸν οἶκον. ὑπὲρ τῆς τοιαύτης οὖν χάριτος ἡ Δημήτηρ τὸν ἀπόγονον Ῥάρου Τριπτόλεμον ἐδίδαξε τὴν τοῦ σίτου γεωργίαν, παρέσχε δὲ αὐτῷ καὶ ἅρμα πτηνῶν δρακόντων, εἰς ὃ ἐποχούμενος ὁ Τριπτόλεμος περιῄει πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν, διδάσκων τὴν τοῦ σίτου γεωργίαν.
Notes:
Stephanus of Byzantium s.v. Rarion: 'a plain in Eleusis. Also [referred to as] Rarian land. And Demeter [is called] Rarias.' See also, in brief, Photius rho44 Theodoridis.
In the Homeric Hymn to Demeter (web address 1 below), the sorrowful goddess visits the home of Keleos himself (97), but the Hymn also mentions the cult-place known as the "Rharian field" (450).
