Extract

Oxyrhynchus Papyrus 3711 discusses Lesbian antiquities. In column ii lines 31 to 36 a quotation from Alkaios is followed by remarks upon Alopekonnesians who settled at Ainos. The passage quoted from Alkaios is already known (130 L.-P. 130 b 9–11 Voigt [P. Oxy. 2165, fr. 1 ii 17–19’), but the new evidence in the lemma has enabled the editor, M. W.

9 In P. Oxy. 3711 ii 36 who are the Thracians and what are they doing? Near Alopekonnesos in the Chersonese they would be Dolonkoi (Herodotos vi. 34.1–2). At Poltymbria-Ainos they would be Apsinthioi: Ἄψινθος was another name of Ainos (Steph. Byz. p. 52.1 Meineke). Apsinthians were warlike (Herodotos loc. cit.) and engaged in human sacrifice (Herodotos ix. 119.1); so the settlers at Ainos are likely to have been attacked. Compare the Klazomenians whom Thracians drove from Abdera (Herodotos i. 168).
