Headword: Ὑρκανός
Adler number: upsilon,665
Translated headword: Hyrkanos, Hyrcanus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A proper name.[1]
"Arion [Author, Myth] asked this man [how many talents he wanted to take ..., and] showed how his father had amassed his property by hard work and resisting his impulses."[2]
Greek Original:
Ὑρκανός: ὄνομα κύριον. τοῦτον ἠρώτησεν Ἀρίων, πῶς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ συναγάγοι τὴν οὐσίαν, ὡς πονῶν καὶ ταῖς ἐπιθυμίαις ἀντέχων ἐδήλου.
Notes:
[1] That of several individuals in Jewish history and historiography of the second and first centuries BCE, notably king John Hyrcanus, son of Simon Maccabee. (The quotation which now follows concerns an earlier homonym, however: see next note.)
[2] A rather clumsy abridgement of Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 12.203 (web address 1). The scene takes place in Alexandria, and Arion [Author, Myth] is the luckless steward of this Hyrcanus' father Joseph. See also pi 3040 with the notes there.
