Abisares

(184 words)

Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
[German version] Indian prince named after his tribe (the Abhisari), who was allied with  Poros. His territory reached from the southern chain of the Karakorum to Kashmir in the east and Hazera (near Rawalpindi) in the west. He supported the resistance to  Alexander [4] in Swat (Arr. Anab. 4,27,7; 30,7), but then sent him presents at Taxila (loc. cit. 5,8,3; in Curt. 8,13,1 false: homage).

Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
[German version] (Σιβύρτιος; Sibýrtios). Friend of Peucestas [2].

Anab. 6,27,1) and was confirmed in office by Perdiccas [4] and Antipater [1]; after 323, however, only Arachosia is mentioned (Diod. 18,3,3; Arr. FGrH 156 F 9,36). He allied himself to Eumenes [1] (Diod. 19,14,6), but had to flee when the latter accused him of high treason (Diod. 19,23,4; 19,27,4). A…

Pharnuches

(127 words)

Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
[German version] (Φαρνούχης; Pharnoúchēs), a Lycian interpreter (though, as his name shows, from a Persian colonist family), was assigned in 329 BC by Alexander [4]  the Great to a task force under the leadership of three hetaíroi that was to relieve the fortress of Marakanda from siege by Spitamenes. By means of the incompetence of the officers the troops were almost completely annihilated. It is impossible that a P. had three hetaíroi under his command (as Arr. Anab. 4,3,7 reports on the authority of Ptolemaeus and Aristobulus [7]): it is certain that he was, as …

Basilikoi paides

(178 words)

Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
[English version] (βασιλικοὶ παῖδες). Lat. pueri regii, Pagen des maked. Königs: Knaben, die er sowohl als Geiseln wie auch als “Pflanzschule für Heerführer und Offiziere” (Curt. 8,6,6) aus der Aristokratie rekrutierte. Unter Alexandros [4] waren es über 50; sie begleiteten und bewachten den König, leisteten ihm persönliche Dienste und standen unter strenger Hauszucht (Curt. 8,6,2-6), weshalb Griechen sie oft als Sklaven bezeichneten. Ob die älteren an der Seite des Königs kämpften, ist nicht sicher. …

(276 words)

Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
[German version] (Λεόννατος; Leónnatos). L., who was born around 356 BC to the royal house of Lyncestis ( Lyncus), may have been the son of a certain Anteas. In 336 he took part in the prosecution of the murderer of Philippus II. As one of his hetairoi, L. was sent by Alexander [4] the Great with a message of solace to the family of Darius [3] (Arr. Anab. 2,12,5; also Curt.; Diod. Sic.). Appointed to the somatophylakes (‘bodyguards’) (Arr. Anab. 3,5,5), L. took part in the coup against Philotas (Curt. 6,8,17) and attempted to prevent the killing of Cleitus [6]. L. confounded the plan to introduce pr…

Dropides

(91 words)

Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
[German version] (Δρωπίδης; Drōpídēs). From an aristocratic Athenian family (an ancestor with the same name was an archon in 645/4 BC and related to  Solon); according to Curtius 3,13,15, he was one of the three Athenian emissaries to  Darius [3] captured by  Parmenion after the battle of  Issus (in 333). The account in Arrian An. 3,24,4, needs to be corrected in some details where it deviates from Curtius [1. 1, 233f.] but reports credibly that  Alexander [4] had him arrested. His fate is unknown. Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA) Bibliography 1 Bosworth, Commentary.

Deditio

(298 words)

Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
[German version] Deditio in potestatem or ─ with a similar meaning ─ deditio in fidem (Pol. 20,9,10-12),was an autonomous state's, nominally, always voluntary surrender of sovereignty to Rome. It was the precondition for the peaceful end of war, and in peace for securing the protection of Rome. After formal acceptance of deditio by the Senate or an appropriately authorized (pro-)magistrate with imperium the surrendered community ceased to exist. Its citizens, gods and possessions became the property of Rome, and Rome could deal with them as it thought fit…

Anab. 7,4,6), remained loyal to Bessus after the death of Darius [3] until he despaired of him and in 329 BC, in concert with Dataphernes, handed him over to Alexander [4] (thus Aristobulus [7]; Ptolemaeus [1] wrote himself into the action: Arr.  Anab. 3,30).

Pharnuches

(104 words)

Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
[English version] (Φαρνούχης), ein lykischer Dolmetscher (doch, wie der Name zeigt, aus persischer Kolonistenfamilie), wurde 329 v.Chr. von Alexandros [4] d.Gr. einem Truppenverband beigegeben, der unter Führung von drei hetaíroi die von Spitamenes belagerte Burg von Marakanda entsetzen sollte. Durch die Inkompetenz der Offiziere wurde die Truppe fast ganz vernichtet. Daß ein Ph. drei hetaíroi unter seinem Kommando hatte (so Arr. an. 4,3,7 aus Ptolemaios und Aristobulos [7]), ist unmöglich: Er wurde, wie Aristobulos ihn sagen läßt, dem Verband sich…

Amicitia

(376 words)

Author(s): Badian, Ernst (Cambridge, MA)
[English version] A. und amicus umfassen auch im Lat. persönliche, philos. und sozial-polit. Aspekte der Freundschaft. Die Nutzung von a. als Ausdruck sozialer und polit. Beziehungen zw. Individuen oder Staaten und ihre unter griech. Einfluß (Philia, Freundschaft) erfolgte Einführung in die Philos. durch Cicero lassen dann familiaris zur ungezwungenen Bezeichnung für den “Freund” werden. Amicus und a. drücken innerhalb Roms sowohl die Beziehung zw. gleichrangigen hochstehenden Personen als auch die Bindung zw. diesen und abhängigen Personen aus: Aris…
