Pharmakides

(103 words)

Author(s): Knorr, Thorsten (Hamburg)
[German version] (Φαρμακίδες; Pharmakídes). According to Paus. 9,11,2, old images of women called Pharmakides ('enchantresses')were displayed at Thebes. According to the Thebans; they had prevented the birth of Hercules [1]  at the behest of Hera. The Pharmakides of Theban local myth are evidently to be identified with Eileithyia and with the Moirae (Moira), who were probably also depicted as Pharmakides on the Cypselus chest (Paus. 5,18,2) [1]. This is supported by the fact that the latter were honoured at Thebes with their own temple (Paus. 9,25,4). Knorr, Thorsten (Hamburg) Bibli…

[German version] (Περσέπτολις; Perséptolis). Son of Telemachus; Polycaste [2] (Hellanicus of Lesbos FGrH 4 F 156) and Nausicaa (ibid.) are named as his mother.
