(Μένιππος). [English version] [1] nach Plutarch Unterfeldherr des Perikles Bei Plut. Perikles 13,10 (vgl. Plut mor. 812d) als Freund und Unterfeldherr des Perikles erwähnt (wohl zw. 443 und 430 v.Chr.). Wie dieser war er Zielscheibe des Komödienspotts. Ob M. tatsächlich als Stratege tätig war, ist ungewiß. Plutarchs Bezeichung für ihn ( hypostratēgṓn) ist die griech. Entsprechung zum lat. Begriff legatus (Develin, 103). Aristoph. Av. 1294 erwähnt einen M., den die Scholien als Pferdehändler identifizieren. Will, Wolfgang (Bonn) Bibliography PA 10033  Traill, PAA 646185 (vgl…

(Μένιππος; Ménippos). [German version] [1] According to Plutarch sub-commander of Pericles In Plut. Pericles 13,10 (cf. Plut Mor. 812d) mentioned as a friend and sub-commander of Pericles (probably between 443 and 430 BC). Like the latter, he was mocked in the comedies. It is uncertain if M. really was a strategos. Plutarch's term for him ( hypostratēgṓn) is the Greek equivalent of the Latin term legatus (Develin, 103). Aristoph. Av. 1294 mentions a M., whom the scholias identify as a horse dealer.

[German version] [1] Fictitious Spartan and adviser to Numa Pompilius Fictitious person, supposedly from Sparta, victor at the Olympic Games in 716 BC, emigrated to Italy where he became an adviser to king Numa Pompilius.
