On account of their wealth from cattle and pasturing (cf. Theoc. 16,36-39) the S. were from time to time at the lead of the Thessalian League (Tagos).

Keryx

(287 words)

Author(s): Beck, Hans (Cologne)

The functions of the kêryx encompass political, diplomatic, judicial and ritual matters (cf. Poll. 8,103). In the Homeric age kḗrykes appear as heralds of basileús as well as servers in sacrificial rites (Hom. Il. 1,320-336; 3,116-120). The high regard in which they were held apparently dates back to the Mycenaean age (Linear B ka-ru-ke) [1; 2]. With the development of the polis authorities, the kêryx increasingly took on th…

Lysagoras

(66 words)

Author(s): Beck, Hans (Köln)
[English version] (Λυσαγόρας) aus Paros, Sohn des Teisias. Nach Herodot (6,133,1) soll das urspr. Motiv der Paros-Expedition des Miltiades im J. 489 v.Chr. persönlicher Groll gegen L. gewesen sein, der Miltiades zuvor angeblich beim persischen Feldherrn Hydarnes [2] verleumdet habe. Dem Bericht liegt vermutlich eine Miltiades-feindliche Quelle zu Grunde [1]. Beck, Hans (Köln) Bibliography 1 K.H.

Teledamos

(172 words)

Author(s): Antoni, Silke | Beck, Hans
[English version] [1] Sohn des Odysseus und der Kalypso (Τηλέδαμος). Nach Eust. in Hom. Od. 16,118 nennt der Verfasser der Tēlegonía einen Sohn des Odysseus und der Kalypso ‘Telegonos oder Teledamos’, der somit Bruder des Nausithoos [2] und des Nausinoos wäre.
