Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA) | Bäbler, Balbina (Göttingen)
(Ἔφιππος). [English version] [1] Schriftsteller zur Zeit Alexanders des Großen von Olynthos, in den letzten Jahren am Hof von Alexandros [4] d.Gr., schrieb später ein anekdotisches Werk ‘Über den Tod von Hephaistion und Alexandros. Da alle Fragmente (FGrH 126) aus Athenaios [3] stammen, beschreiben sie zumeist Gelage. Wir hören auch, daß Alexandros sich die Insignien verschiedener Götter anzulegen pflegte und wie Gorgos sich um die Befreiung von Samos bemühte. Die Gleichsetzung von E. mit einem Offizier von Alexandros in Ägypten (so Berve 2, Nr. 331) ist falsche Kombination. Badian…

Dithyrambendichter, vermutlich der Autor einer Inschr. auf einem Dreifuß für den Sieg der Phyle Akamantis beim Dithyrambenwettstreit an den Dionysien (FGE 11-15). Die Quelle (Anth. Pal. 13,28) schreibt das Epigramm ›Simonides oder Bacchylides‹ zu, aber Hecker erkannte A. zwingend als Autor, der sich selbst den χοροδιδάσκαλος nennt [1.149-152]; der χορηγός und der αὐλητής werden auch genannt.

Antigenes

(291 words)

Author(s): Robbins, Emmet (Toronto) | Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
(Ἀντιγένης; Antigénēs). [German version] [1] Dithyrambic poet Attic dithyrambic poet, presumably the author of an inscription on a tripod for the victory of the phyle  Acamantis in the dithyrambic competition in the Dionysia (FGE 11-15). The sources (Anth. Pal. 13,28) ascribe the epigram to ‘Simonides or Bacchylides’, but Hecker emphatically recognized Antigenes as the author; he calls himself the χοροδιδάσκαλος [1.149-152]; the χορηγός and αὐλητής are also mentioned. In order to put the names into verse, an unusual metre is used. The date is perhaps c. 485 BC. [2]. Robbins, Emmet (…

Ephippus

(265 words)

Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA) | Bäbler, Balbina (Göttingen)
(Ἔφιππος; Éphippos). [German version] [1] Author in the period of Alexander the Great of Olynthus, at the court of  Alexander [4] the Great during the final years; he later wrote an anecdotal work ‘On the life and death of Hephaestion and Alexander’. As all extant fragments (FGrH 126) derive from  Athenaeus [3], they for the most part describe banquets. We also hear that Alexander was in the habit of putting on the insignia of various gods, and like  Gorgus sought the liberation of Samos. Identification of E. with an officer of Alexander in Egypt (cf. Berve 2, no. 331) is erroneously based. Badi…

[1. 318, n. 2]). Philip's intervention in Euboea in 343 and 342 [1. 502f., 545-549] brought C. to power (Dem. Or. 8,36; 9,57f.; 18,71; 19,87). Phocion expelled him in 341 (Philochorus FGrH 328 F 160; Diod. Sic. 16,74,1).  Tyrannis Cobet, Justus (Essen) Bibliography 1 N. G. L. Hammond, G. T. Griffith,…

After the synoecism of the eastern Acarnanians, he was ordered to protect them against the Aetolians.

On the basis of his experience P. possesses an understanding of the past and the future. As an astute and level-headed counsellor he represents the pessimistic alter ego of Hector, the town’s defender, who was born on the same day as P.

According to Pausanias, he created statues of the boxers Glaucus, Philo and Theagenes in Olympia, whose victories or honours occurred in the 1st quarter of the 5th cent. BC.

(431 words)

Author(s): Seidlmayer, Stephan Johannes (Berlin) | Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
[German version] [1] Egyptian ruler of the 1st Dynasty From the 19th Dynasty on (13th cent. BC), the Egyptian king lists mention a king M. (Egyptuan Mnj; Manetho: Μήνης/ Mḗnēs) as the first ruler of the 1st Dynasty, and the authors of classical antiquity simply shaped his image into that of the founder par excellence.

HN 7,56), the laying down of laws in writing (Diod. 1,94) and generally the…
