Skopadai

(139 words)

Author(s): Beck, Hans
[English version] (Σκοπάδαι). Adelsgeschlecht aus Krannon, das im 6. Jh. v. Chr. neben den Aleuadai zu den führenden Clans Thessaliens zählte. Ihr Reichtum aus Vieh- und Weidewirtschaft (vgl. Theokr. 16,36-39) brachte die S. zeitweise an die Spitze des Thessalischen Bundes ( tágos ). Wie dem Aleuas wurden auch ihrem (myth.-)histor. Begründer, Skopas I., konstitutive Maßnahmen bei der Einrichtung der thessal. Wehrordnung zugeschrieben (vgl. Xen. hell. 6,1,19; Athen. 10,438C; Quint. inst. 11,2,15). Die Brautwerbung d…

(etym. von táxis, also vergleichbar mit “Herzog”) der gewählte (auf Lebenszeit, später für den Kriegsfall: IG IX 2,257) Oberbeamte des Thessalischen Bundes gesehen [1. 237-249; 2]. Die Dominanz der Adels-Clans (Aleuadai; Echekratidai; Skopadai) bewirkte im 5. Jh. v. Chr. einen Bedeutungsverlust des Amts der tageía [3. 125-127]; unter Iason [2] erfuhr das Amt kurzzeitig neuen Prestigegewinn [5]. Jüngste Studien sehen im t. dagegen einen genuin lokalen Amtsträger (offizielle Bezeichnung des Oberamtes stattdessen archós…
