Appian, who puts a long speech into his mouth on this occasion. calls him the most distinguished member of the embassy. (Appian, App. Pun. 82.) His name is written, in many of the MSS. Βάννων, which has been corrupted into Βλάννων in the extracts from Diodorus Siculus (Fragm. Urs. p. 627), and by Suidas into Βράνων.
