Pausanias, Description of Greece, Elis 2, chapter 9 (search)
t day in Aegina and announced the victory. The statue of Philles of Elis, who won the boys' wrestling-match, was made by the Spartan Cratinus.As regards the chariot of Gelon, I did not come to the same opinion about it as my predecessors, who hold that the chariot is an offering of the Gelon who became tyrant in Sicily. Now there is an inscription on the chariot that it was dedicated by Gelon of Gela, son of Deinomenes, and the date of the victory of this Gelon is the seventy-third Festival488 B.C.. But the Gelon who was tyrant of Sicily took possession of Syracuse when Hybrilides was archon at Athens, in the second year of the seventy-second Olympiad491 B.C., when Tisicrates of Croton won the foot-race. Plainly, therefore, he would have announced himself as of Syracuse, not Gela. The fact is that this Gelon must be a private person, of the same name as the tyrant, whose father had the same name as the tyrant's father. It was Glaucias of Aegina who made both the chariot and the portr

Olympian 14 For Asopichus of Orchomenus Boys' Foot Race ?488 B. C. You who have your home by the waters of Cephisus, who dwell in the town of beautiful horses: songful queens, Graces of splendid Orchomenus, guardians of the ancient race of Minyans,hear me; I am praying. For with your help all delightful and sweet things are accomplished for mortals, if any man is skillful, or beautiful, or splendid. Not even the gods arrange dances or feasts without the holy Graces, who oversee everythingthat is done in heaven; with their thrones set beside Pythian Apollo of the golden bow, they worship the everlasting honor of the Olympian father. Lady Aglaia, and Euphrosyne, lover of dance and song, daughters of the strongest god,listen now; and you, Thalia, passionate for dance and song, having looked with favor on this victory procession, stepping lightly in honor of gracious fortune. For I have come to sing of Asopichus in Lydian melodies and chosen phrases, because the Minyan land is victoriou

FROM SUIDAS Y.R. 263The people refused to elect Marcius (Coriolanus) when B.C. 491 he sought the consulship, not because they considered him unfit, but because they feared his domineering spirit. FROM SUIDAS Y.R. 265Marcius being inflamed against the Romans when they B.C. 489 banished him went over to the Volsci, meditating no small revenge. FROM SUIDAS Y.R. 266When he arrived there, having renounced his own country B.C. 488 and kin, he did not meditate anything in particular, but intended to side with the Volsci against his country.Mendelssohn considers this whole fragment corrupt. FROM "THE EMBASSIES" When Marcius had been banished, and had taken refuge with the Volsci, and made war against the Romans, and was encamped at a distance of only four hundred stades from the city, the people threatened to betray the walls to the enemy unless the Senate would send an embassy to him to tre
The Women of Aetna, Aeschylus also composed other pieces in Sicily, in which are said to have occurred Sicilian words and expressions not intelligible to the Athenians. (Athen. 9.402b.) From the number of such words and expressions, which have been noticed in the later extant plays of Aeschylus, it has been inferred that he spent a considerable time in Sicily, on this his first visit. We must not however omit to mention, that, according to some accounts, Aeschylus also visited Sicily about B. C. 488, previous to what we have considered his first visit. (Bode, Id. iii. p. 215.) The occasion of this retirement is said to have been the victory gained over him by Simonides, to whom the Athenians adjudged the prize for the best elegy on those who fell at Maarathon. This tradition, however, is not supported by strong independent testimony, and accordingly its truth has been much questionned. Suidas indeed states that Aeschylus had visited Sicily even before this, when he was only twenty-fiv
Deino'lochus (*Deino/loxos,) a comic poet of Syracuse or Agrigentum, was, according to some, the son, according to others, the disciple, of Epicharimus. He lived about B. C. 488, and wrote fourteen plays in the Doric dialect, about which we only know, from a few titles, that some of them were on mythological subjects. (Suid. s.v. Fabric. Bibl. Graec. ii. p. 436; Grysar, de Doriens. Com. i. p. 81.) [P.
the common interchange of the letters r and s (Liv. 3.4), as in the name Valerius and Valesius. History leaves us in darkness as to the origin of the Furia gens; but, from sepulchral inscriptions found at Tusculum (Gronov. Thesaur. vol. xii. p. 24), we see that the name Furius was very common in that place, and hence it is generally inferred that the Furia gens, like the Fulvia, had come to Rome from Tusculum. As the first member of the gens that occurs in history, Sex. Furius Medullinus, B. C. 488, is only five years later than the treaty of isopolity which Sp. Cassius concluded with the Latins, to whom the Tusculans belonged, the supposition of the Tusculan origin of the Furia gens does not appear at all improbable. The cognomens of this gens are ACULEO, BIBACULUS, BROCCHUS, CAMILLUS, CRASSIPES, FUSUS, LUSCUS, MEDULLINUS, PACILUS, PHILUS and PURPUREO. The only cognomens that occur on coins are Brocchus, Crassipes, Philus, Purpureo. There are some persons bearing the gentile name Fu
Glau'cias (*Glauki/as), a statuary of Aegina, who made the bronze chariot and statue of Gelon, the son of Deinomenes, afterwards tyrant of Sycuse, in commemoration of his victory in the chariot race at Olympia, Ol. 73, B. C. 488. The following bronze statues at Olympia were also by Glaucias:--Philon, whose victory was recorded in the following epigram by Simonides, the son of Leoprepes,-- *Patri\s me\n *Korku/ra, fi/lwn d' o)/nom', ei)mi\ de\ *Glau/kou *Ui(o\s, kai\ ni/kh pu\c du/' o)lumpia/dawing bronze statues at Olympia were also by Glaucias:--Philon, whose victory was recorded in the following epigram by Simonides, the son of Leoprepes,-- *Patri\s me\n *Korku/ra, fi/lwn d' o)/nom', ei)mi\ de\ *Glau/kou *Ui(o\s, kai\ ni/kh pu\c du/' o)lumpia/das: Glaucus of Carystus, the boxer, practising strokes (skiamaxw=n); and Theagenes of Thasos, who conquered Euthymus in boxing in Ol. 75, B.

Medulli'nus a family-name of the gens Furia, a very ancient patrician house at Rome. [FURIA GENS.] Medullia, from which the surname comes, was a Latin town very early incorporated with Rome (Dionys. A. R. 3.1; Liv. 1.33, 38), and, since Medullinus appears on the Fasti in B. C. 488, only five years after the Cassian treaty of isopolity with the Latin league, this branch of the Furii was doubtless Latin. The Tullii Hostilii also were originally from Medullia. (Dionys. l. c.; Macr. 1.6.)
Medulli'nus 1. SEXT. FURIUS MEDULLINUS FUSUS, was consul in B. C. 488, the year in which, according to the common story, Coriolanus led the Volscians against Rome. (Dionys. A. R. 8.16, 63; Liv. 2.39.)
Nau'tia Gens an ancient patrician gens, a member of which obtained the consulship as early as B. C. 488. It claimed to be descended from Nautius or Nautes, one of the companions of Aeneas, who was said to have brought with him the Palladium from Troy, which was placed under the care of the Nautii at Rome. (Dionys. A. R. 6.4; Verg. A. 5.704, with the note of Servius.) Like many of the other ancient gentes, the Nautii disappear from history about the time of the Samnite wars. All the Nautii bore the surname of RUTILUS.
