Some notes on the names ΦΑΝΑΓΟΡΕΙΑ and ΦΑΝΑΓΟΡΗΣ

Òåêñò ïðèâîäèòñÿ ïî èçäàíèþ: «Àíòè÷íûé ìèð è àðõåîëîãèÿ». Âûï. 16. Ñàðàòîâ, 2013. Ñ. 180—189.

ñ.180 This pa­per is the re­sult of a ve­ry simple ques­tion which a col­lea­gue on­ce addres­sed to me: “What was the na­me of the Pon­tic ci­ty: Pha­na­góreia (Φανα­γόρεια) or Pha­na­go­ría (Φανα­γορία)?” “Pha­na­góreia”, the rep­ly ca­me. Sin­ce that mo­ment I re­pea­ted to my­self the ques­tion again and again. I wro­te down all va­rio­us forms of the na­me. And I rea­li­zed how compli­ca­ted the who­le mat­ter is: an­cient scho­lars pro­vi­ded spa­re and so­me­ti­mes dis­tor­ted in­for­ma­tion; mo­dern scho­lars ac­cept the one or the ot­her ver­sion with no cri­ti­cism at all (Φανα­γορία instead of Φανα­γόρεια, Φανα­γόρας instead of Φανα­γόρης etc). In the fol­lowing pa­ges an at­tempt is ma­de to dis­cuss the ques­tions about the va­rio­us forms of the na­mes re­la­ted to the well known Pon­tic ci­ty of Pha­na­go­reia.

I. Pha­na­go­reia (Φανα­γόρεια) was foun­ded by co­lo­nists from Teos (c. 545—540 B. C.) on the pre­sent day Ta­man’ pe­nin­su­la, in the north-eas­tern Black Sea area. Ac­cor­ding to so­me scho­lars, the­se co­lo­nists did not co­me di­rectly from Teos, but through Ab­de­ra, which was ano­ther co­lo­ny foun­ded by Teos al­most si­mul­ta­neo­us­ly with Pha­na­go­reia. It seems that Pha­na­go­reia enjoyed a free sta­tus from the ve­ry be­gin­nings un­til 480 B. C., when the Ar­chaea­nac­tids — ru­lers of the Cim­me­rian Bos­po­rus Kingdom — ex­ten­ded their power over the ci­ty. Pha­na­go­reia was a pros­pe­rous ci­ty at that ti­me, min­ting sil­ver coins and tra­ding with the Greek mo­ther-ci­ties and co­lo­nies. When the Spar­to­cids took over the Bos­po­rus Kingdom, Pha­na­go­reia fa­ced the dec­li­ne. La­ter, it was the first ci­ty that re­bel­led against Mith­ri­da­tes Eupa­tor and in the middle of the 1st c. B. C. it was par­tial­ly destroyed by Phar­na­ces. The­re is evi­den­ce that the ci­ty still exis­ted in the 4th c. A. D. and that it was sud­den­ly aban­do­ned as a re­sult of the Hun­nish raids. A small tra­ding cen­ter ap­pea­red much la­ter in that pla­ce1.

II: The foun­der Φανα­γόρης and the per­so­nal na­mes Φανα­γόρας and Φανα­γόρα

The ci­ty was na­med af­ter its first co­lo­nist and foun­der2. He was Φανα­γόρης (Ionic dia­lect; Φανα­γόρας in the At­tic) from Teos. The on­ly ñ.181 evi­den­ce which sur­vi­ved about the events of that co­lo­ni­za­tion and foun­da­tion is the in­for­ma­tion that the in­ha­bi­tants of Teos aban­do­ned their ci­ty be­cau­se of the Per­sian threat3.

The foun­der’s na­me is at­tes­ted in se­ve­ral do­cu­ments da­ting from the An­ti­qui­ty and the Middle Ages. The word Φανα­γόρης de­ri­ved from the an­cient root ΦΑϜ (cf. v. φάω n. * φάϝος > φάος / Pam­phy­lian Greek φά­βος / contrac­ted At­tic Greek φῶς, which means “light” but al­so “glo­ry”), which was la­ter for­med as ΦΑΝ (cf. φαίνω < φάν--ω)4. The se­cond com­po­si­te of the na­me ca­me from the word ἀγο­ρά5. Se­ve­ral per­so­nal na­mes were for­med with the com­po­si­te ἀγο­ρά, e. g. Ἀγο­ρακ­λής (the one who has glo­ry in the pub­lic as­sembly), Ἀγο­ράκ­ρι­τος (the one who is being jud­ged by the pub­lic as­sembly, cf. Δη­μόκ­ρι­τος), Ἀθη­ναγό­ρας (a wise ora­tor — inspi­red by At­he­na), Ἀρισ­τα­γόρας (the best ora­tor or the best among tho­se who work for the com­mon good), Διαγό­ρας (a good ora­tor — inspi­red and en­cou­ra­ged by Zeus), Εὐαγό­ρας (a good ora­tor), Μολ­πα­γόρας, Πρω­ταγό­ρας (the best ora­tor or the best among tho­se who work for the com­mon good), Πυ­θαγό­ρας (the one who pro­vi­des in­for­ma­tion to the pub­lic as­sembly), Τι­μαγό­ρας, Νι­καγό­ρας, Κλει­ναγό­ρας etc. Mo­reo­ver, se­ve­ral per­so­nal na­mes were for­med with the com­po­si­te φαν- (or φαιν-), e. g. Φανοκ­λής, Φαινεκ­λῆς, Φανόκ­ρι­τος, Φανό­μα­χος, Φανό­δικος, Φανοστρά­τη, Φαινα­ρέτη, Φαίνιπ­πος etc.

Φανα­γόρης could mean “so­meo­ne who brings the light, the en­lighten­ment or the re­veal to the pub­lic as­sembly”, but it could al­so mean “so­meo­ne who has glo­ry when spea­king in the pub­lic as­sembly” (cf. Ἀγο­ρακ­λής). If we choo­se the first mea­ning, then Su­ri­kov might be right and this na­me could be an epik­le­sis to the god Apol­lo, who was al­so cal­led Πύ­θιος (and Λο­ξίας) be­cau­se he re­vea­led to the peop­le (cf. the per­so­nal na­me Πυ­θαγό­ρας) the fu­tu­re (so­me­ti­mes through in­ter­me­dia­tion of his son, Ascle­pius). This epik­le­sis could al­so be lin­ked, as Su­ri­kov sug­ges­ted, with the uni­den­ti­fied coins bea­ring the le­gend ΑΠΟΛ6. Howe­ver, as Su­ri­kov him­self re­mar­ked, such epik­le­sis (for both Pha­na­go­reia and Her­mo­nas­sa, which is al­so men­tio­ned in his stu­dy) is not con­fir­med by any sour­ce.

Mo­reo­ver, Su­ri­kov sug­ges­ted that sin­ce no ar­chaic (and even clas­si­cal) Greek co­lo­ny ci­ty bears the na­me of the (hu­man) foun­der then we must as­su­me that the ca­se of Pha­na­go­reia (and Her­mo­nas­sa) is the sa­me. ñ.182 The scho­lar then pro­ceeds on the text of Pla­to (Laws) in or­der to sup­port his ar­gu­ments. Last, he sug­ges­ted that re­sear­chers should always trust the most an­cient writ­ten sour­ces7.

For the first sug­ges­tion we may say that it is an ar­gu­men­tum ex si­len­tio. It is true that we don’t ha­ve at our dis­po­sal firm evi­den­ce which would pro­ve beyond any doubt that Pha­na­go­res, a hu­man, was in­deed the foun­der and first co­lo­nist. On the ot­her hand, we ha­ve no firm da­ta which pro­ve the contra­ry: all avai­lab­le in­for­ma­tion — re­liab­le or not — point to Pha­na­go­res as a hu­man being, not a god. And it would be an exag­ge­ra­tion to claim that no ar­chaic co­lo­ny ci­ty took the na­me from the foun­der: By­zan­tium, for example, was na­med af­ter By­zas, a half-his­to­ri­cal — half-my­thi­cal per­son, de­pen­ding on the sour­ce. It is true that per­haps Greeks of old had to in­vent a le­gend in or­der to explain the ori­gins of so­me dif­fi­cult — to — in­terpret pla­ce-na­mes. But no mat­ter who By­zas real­ly was, ac­cor­ding to tra­di­tion the ci­ty was na­med af­ter him and this is a fact. Pha­na­go­res could be a hu­man or a se­mi-god or wha­te­ver. Un­til new da­ta co­me to light, the­re is one and on­ly tra­di­tion and the fact is that the ci­ty was na­med af­ter him, not so­meo­ne el­se, not any­thing el­se.

About the ques­tion of the re­liab­le and non re­liab­le sour­ces: the­re are no strict or clear­ly de­fi­ned li­mits, fra­mes and ca­te­go­ries mar­king the re­lia­bi­li­ty of the an­cient and me­die­val wri­ters. Each ca­se is dif­fe­rent. And we should ne­ver for­get that la­te wri­ters sour­ced ear­lier wri­ters. So­me­ti­mes in­for­ma­tion from ear­ly wri­ters did not sur­vi­ve. So­me­ti­mes in­for­ma­tion from ear­ly wri­ters sur­vi­ved on­ly through la­ter wri­ters. La­te wri­ters so­me­ti­mes dis­tor­ted in­for­ma­tion ta­ken by their pre­ce­dents, so­me­ti­mes they did not.

Mo­reo­ver, we should no­te he­re that Su­ri­kov ba­sed his ar­gu­ments on the text of Pla­to (Laws)8, but in the quo­ted pas­sa­ge the Greek phi­lo­sop­her was nei­ther pro­vi­ding instruc­tions nor en­lis­ting the ge­ne­ral ru­les about the na­ming of a ci­ty: he was gi­ving examples (τάχ᾿ ἂν ἴσωςπροσ­θείη). Mo­re, Pla­to was li­ke­ly wri­ting about an ideal si­tua­tion, men­tio­ning so­me ca­ses which the foun­ders fol­lowed (so­me­thing which does not mean that they ac­tual­ly fol­lowed them). In­deed, Laws is a dia­lo­gue of po­li­ti­cal and phi­lo­sop­hi­cal na­tu­re about the laws by which Pla­to sug­ges­ted that aris­toc­ra­cy (in which rich peop­le par­ti­ci­pa­te) is the best form of go­vernment (so­me­thing which contra­dicts his ot­her po­li­ti­cal — phi­lo­sop­hi­cal work about jus­ti­ce, the Re­pub­lic, whe­re Pla­to rejec­ted all forms of go­vernment as non functio­nal enough to sur­vi­ve in the cour­se of ti­me). Last, Pla­to might re­fer to his own era — not the ar­chaic one — when he men­tio­ned the­se examples.

Let us go back to the na­mes. The per­so­nal na­me in ques­tion is at­tes­ted mostly in the At­tic form Φανα­γόρας (nom.), Φανα­γόρου (gen.)9, but ñ.183 so­me­ti­mes in the Ionic form as well: Φανα­γόρης (nom.), Φανα­γόρεω (gen.)10. It would be a mis­ta­ke to be­lie­ve that the na­me Φανα­γόρης can form the ge­ni­ti­ve with two en­dings, -εω and -ου11, be­cau­se the­se forms ca­me from dif­fe­rent dia­lects and the na­mes ha­ve dif­fe­rent en­dings in the no­mi­na­ti­ve ca­se as well. Ionic dia­lect was pre­do­mi­nant in Teos, so in our opi­nion the right form of the foun­der’s na­me was Φανα­γόρης (gen. -εω). The form Φανα­γόρας was much mo­re widespread in an­cient li­te­ra­tu­re be­cau­se most of the texts were writ­ten in the At­tic dia­lect. We should no­te he­re that He­ca­tae­us’ text is cor­rup­ted: Ste­pha­nus By­zan­tius was usual­ly fol­lowing his sour­ces word by word. In this ca­se, howe­ver, Ste­pha­nus re­cor­ded the At­tic form Φανα­γόρου which was ascri­bed as He­ca­tae­us’ wri­ting (so­me­thing which was ac­cep­ted by the edi­tors of He­ca­tae­us’ text). He­ca­tae­us used the Ionic dia­lect, not the At­tic. We can­not be su­re whe­ther Ste­pha­nus him­self transfor­med the na­me or he found it li­ke this in the ma­nuscript he used. Ano­ther op­tion is that the na­me was transfor­med by the edi­tors of Ste­pha­nus’ work, per­haps Her­mo­laus.

Φανα­γόρης was a qui­te po­pu­lar per­so­nal na­me in Ar­chaic and Clas­si­cal Gree­ce. The most an­cient evi­den­ce about this na­me is an inscrip­tion from Thra­ce (6th c. B. C.)12. Sin­ce then we can find it in Tha­sos13 and Chios14 (5th4th c.), again in Tha­sos15 and in the Cim­me­rian Bos­po­rus16 (4th c.), in Sa­mos17 (3rd2nd c.) and again in Chios18 (2nd1st c.). This Ionic form ñ.184 at­tes­ted ac­tual­ly in the Eas­tern parts of the Greek world, is rep­re­sen­ted by the ear­liest inscrip­tions19.

Φανα­γόρας was a po­pu­lar na­me as well. Long af­ter the dec­li­ne of the Ionian ci­ties, the na­me in At­tic dia­lect be­gan to spread in the Aegean and At­ti­ca: in Keos20 (4th3rd c.), in De­los21, Keos22, Les­bos23 and Tha­sos24 (3rd c.) and in At­ti­ca25 (1st c. B. C.) (Stran­ge­ly enough, the pas­sa­ge from Hdt. VII. 214: Ὀνή­της τε ὁ Φανα­γόρεω ἀνὴρ Κα­ρύσ­τιος was con­si­de­red by LGPN. 1. P. 453, Φανα­γόρας, Euboia 3, as evi­den­ce for the na­me Φανα­γόρας, not Φανα­γόρης!). And, of cour­se, the­re was a fe­ma­le per­so­nal na­me Φανα­γόρα which is at­tes­ted — to our knowled­ge — on­ly in At­ti­ca: in the 5th4th c.26, in the 4th c.27 and in the 3rd c.28 How can we explain the spread of the per­so­nal na­mes Pha­na­go­ra and (to a les­ser deg­ree) Pha­na­go­ras in At­hens? It seems that it was the re­sult of the approa­ching between At­hens and the Bos­po­rus Kingdom, who­se re­la­tions be­ca­me stron­ger af­ter Pe­ric­les’ ex­pe­di­tion and es­pe­cial­ly in the ti­mes of Sa­ty­rus I and Leu­con I. Sin­ce the 430’s—420’s the Pon­tic area (in par­ti­cu­lar the nor­thern sho­res) be­ca­me mo­re fa­mi­liar to the At­he­nians29.

III: The pla­ce na­mes Φανα­γόρεια and Φανα­γορία (), Φανα­γόρειον (τὸ), Φανα­γόρη and Φανα­γόρεια (νῆ­σος), τὰ Φανα­γόρεια (ἐμπό­ριον)

ñ.185 The ci­ty’s na­me is not re­cor­ded eit­her in inscrip­tions or in coins30. Ac­cor­ding to the li­te­ra­ry sour­ces the na­me was Φανα­γόρεια (): this form was used by al­most all the wri­ters who wro­te about the ci­ty (He­ca­tae­us, Pseu­do-Scym­nus, Stra­bo, Ap­pia­nus, Ar­ria­nus, He­ro­dia­nus, Ste­pha­nus By­zan­tius, the ano­ny­mous aut­hor of the Pe­rip­lus of the Pon­tus Euxi­nus). We should not for­get, howe­ver, that Ste­pha­nus By­zan­tius sour­ced He­ca­tae­us and He­ro­dia­nus; Eus­ta­thi­us of Thes­sa­lo­ni­ca sour­ced Ar­rian and the ano­ny­mous aut­hor of the Pe­rip­lus sour­ced Pseu­do-Scym­nus. It is dif­fi­cult the­re­fo­re to say who the first to use the form was and whe­ther the word was part of the ori­gi­nal texts or was ad­ded by la­ter aut­hors or co­pyists. Be that as it may, all the wri­ters ha­ve used cor­rectly the forms of the na­me (Φανα­γόρεια, Φανα­γορείας, Φανα­γορεία, Φανα­γόρειαν).

The na­me Φανα­γορία is re­cor­ded on­ly by Pto­le­my31. This must be, most li­ke­ly, the mis­ta­ke of a co­pyist who was wri­ting the ge­ni­ti­ve or da­ti­ve ca­se of the na­me. He ac­cen­tua­ted the last syl­lab­le of the no­mi­na­ti­ve ca­se and he al­so omit­ted the let­ter ε of the en­ding. No mat­ter what hap­pe­ned it is true that the en­ding -ία — wit­hout ε — finds a pa­ral­lel in the la­ter form of the ci­ty-eth­nic na­me Φανα­γορί­της, at­tes­ted in inscrip­tions and coins (see be­low). In the li­te­ra­ry sour­ces, howe­ver, the form Φανα­γορεί­της pre­do­mi­na­tes. It is dif­fi­cult to say whe­ther the forms Φανα­γορία and Φανα­γορί­της were so­me­how lin­ked to each ot­her. We be­lie­ve that Φανα­γορί­της is a simpli­fied ver­sion of the eth­nic na­me and that it could be writ­ten eit­her with ει or with ι.

Ac­cor­ding to the cri­ti­cal edi­tions of the an­cient texts, four an­cient aut­hors re­cor­ded the is­land of Pha­na­go­reia (Φανα­γόρεια νῆ­σος): He­ca­tae­us, Dio­ny­sius Pe­rie­ge­tes, He­ro­dia­nus and Ste­pha­nus By­zan­tius32. In our opi­nion on­ly Dio­ny­sius and He­ro­dia­nus pre­sent the ori­gi­nal in­for­ma­tion. He­ca­tae­us should be exclu­ded from this group. Des­pi­te the fact that in He­ca­tae­us’ la­test edi­tion the frag­ment in ques­tion (Φανα­γόρεια, πό­λις ἀπὸ Φανα­γόρου, ὡς Ἑκα­ταῖος Ἀσίᾳ. ἡ νῆ­σος Φανα­γόρη καὶ Φανα­γόρεια. ἔστι καὶ ἐμπό­ριον τὰ Φανα­γόρεια οὐδε­τέρως, which is ta­ken from Ste­pha­nus By­zan­tius) is whol­ly attri­bu­ted to the an­cient wri­ter, we be­lie­ve that on­ly the first part of it be­longs to He­ca­tae­us. The rest of the frag­ment should be con­si­de­red as Ste­pha­nus’ ad­di­tion, ba­sed on in­for­ma­tion from He­ro­dia­nus. The By­zan­ti­ne le­xi­co­gra­pher wro­te — in the entry Φανα­γόρεια — about the is­land which was cal­led Φανα­γόρη and Φανα­γόρεια, co­pying He­ro­dia­nus (ac­cor­ding to A. Lentz).

Lentz’s ef­fort to res­ti­tu­te He­ro­dia­nus’ text (not on­ly in this pas­sa­ge but as a work in ge­ne­ral) is am­bi­guo­us though and we should won­der ñ.186 whe­ther this in­for­ma­tion about Pha­na­go­reia real­ly be­longs to He­ro­dia­nus or Ste­pha­nus. We would li­ke to express the fol­lowing hy­po­the­sis he­re: that Dio­ny­sius’ in­for­ma­tion about an is­land with two ci­ties on it, Phai­na­go­re (Φαινα­γόρη) and Her­mo­nas­sa (Ἑρμώ­νασ­σα) was co­pied and dis­tor­ted by Ste­pha­nus (who wro­te, mis­ta­ken­ly, about two dif­fe­rent is­lands, not ci­ties. Ac­tual­ly Dio­ny­sius is wrong too, be­cau­se Her­mo­nas­sa was not lo­ca­ted on the sa­me is­land as Pha­na­go­reia, but on a pe­nin­su­la). Thus Ste­pha­nus co­pied the first form of the na­me (Φανα­γόρη) from Dio­ny­sius (Φαινα­γόρη) and the se­cond (Φανα­γόρεια) from Stra­bo. This point of view can be con­fir­med by the fact that Ste­pha­nus used the form Φανα­γόρεια when he men­tio­ned Stra­bo (see al­so be­low) and Φανα­γόρη or Φανα­γόρα in all ot­her ca­ses, that is when he wro­te about the is­land33. In this ca­se, the frag­ment con­si­de­red as He­ro­dia­nus’ pro­duc­tion be­longs to Ste­pha­nus.

The terms Φανα­γόρειον (τὸ) and Φανα­γόρεια (τὰ, ἐμπό­ριον), in neu­ter, sin­gu­lar and plu­ral num­ber, res­pec­ti­ve­ly are re­cor­ded by Stra­bo and Ste­pha­nus By­zan­tius. Ste­pha­nus co­pied Stra­bo, but the ques­tion is not so simple. Ac­cor­ding to the pre­vio­us edi­tions of Stra­bo’s work, the pas­sa­ge was “τὸ Φανα­γόρειον (κα­λεῖται…)”, but in the la­test edi­tion Radt has cor­rec­ted the na­me as “ἡ Φανα­γόρου κα­λεῖται…”34. A. Mei­ne­ke had ac­cep­ted the old res­ti­tu­tion of Stra­bo’s text and, of cour­se, he used it in Ste­pha­nus’ text as well35. In the new edi­tion of Ste­pha­nus’ work the pas­sa­ge in ques­tion is omit­ted36. It is im­pos­sib­le to explain Stra­bo’s choi­ce to pre­sent the na­me in neu­ter, sin­ce he knew that it was ori­gi­nal­ly fe­ma­le. Per­haps this in­ven­tion is so­me­how con­nec­ted with Pha­na­go­reia’s iden­ti­ty as an ‘em­po­rion’, a word of neu­ter gen­der. In so­me less im­por­tant ma­nuscripts of Stra­bo’s work one can read ἡ Φανα­γορία (see Radt, app. crit.). Be that as it may, in our opi­nion Radt is right to cor­rect the word, be­cau­se Pha­na­go­reia — as Mei­ne­ke had al­so re­mar­ked — was in fact ἡ τοῦ (or ἡ ἀπὸ) Φανα­γόρου πό­λις. Stra­bo, howe­ver, was not the on­ly aut­hor who descri­bed Pha­na­go­reia as an ‘em­po­rion’. Ap­pia­nus wro­te: ἐς Φανα­γόρειαν, ἕτε­ρον ἐμπό­ριον37.

IV: The eth­nic na­mes Φανα­γορεύς and Φανα­γορ(ε)ί­της

Ac­cor­ding to He­ro­dia­nus, the eth­nic na­me ori­gi­nal­ly used for the in­ha­bi­tants of Pha­na­go­reia was Φανα­γορεύς, but la­ter the form Φανα­γορεί­της do­mi­na­ted: Φανα­γόρεια πό­λις, τὸ ἐθνι­κὸν ἐχρῆν Φανα­γορεὺς ὡς Ἀλε­ξανδρεὺς τῷ πλείονι λό­γῳ ἐκρά­τησε δ᾿ ὅμως Φανα­γορεί­της38. This in­for­ma­tion is ab­so­lu­te­ly re­liab­le. The form Φανα­γορεὺς is at­tes­ted in the li­te­ra­ry texts from the ve­ry an­cient ti­mes un­til the end of An­ti­qui­ty; the form Φανα­γορ(ε)ί­της, on the ot­her hand, is used for the first ti­me in the end of the 2nd c. and in the 1st c. B. C. on the coins of the ci­ty39. From that ti­me on, this term was writ­ten ñ.187 in inscrip­tions as well: the first, da­ted in 88—87 B. C. speaks about the bou­le and de­mos of the ci­ti­zens of Pha­na­go­reia (ΦΑΝΑΓΟΡΙΤΩΝ: Φανα­γορι­τῶν ἡ βου­λὴ καὶ ὁ δῆ­μος)40. The se­cond, da­ted in the first cen­tu­ries A. D., speaks about an am­bas­sa­dor sent to Ro­me by the ci­ti­zens of Pha­na­go­reia (ΦΑΝΑΓΟΡΕΙΤΩΝ: Ἥδυ­κος Εὐόδου πρεσ­βευτὴς Φανα­γορει­τῶν τῶν κα­τὰ Βοὸς πό­ρον)41. The­re should be no doubt that the na­me of­fi­cial­ly used sin­ce at least the end of the 2nd c. B. C. was Φανα­γορ(ε)ί­της. In so­me texts of the first cen­tu­ries A. D. (e. g. Ap­pia­nus42) the old form Φανα­γορεύς was used but that de­pen­ded on the work that each wri­ter sour­ced.

This pro­ce­du­re of rea­ding and co­pying ear­lier texts re­sul­ted to the de­lay of the use of the new form in the works of the aut­hors wri­ting in the Chris­tian ti­mes. The form Φανα­γορ(ε)ί­της first ap­pea­red in li­te­ra­ry texts in the 2nd c. A. D. and is at­tes­ted on­ly in two aut­hors: At­he­nae­us and He­ro­dia­nus (and al­so Ste­pha­nus By­zan­tius, who co­pied He­ro­dia­nus)43.

The va­ria­tion of the en­dings -εί­της and -ί­της can be explai­ned as a simpli­fi­ca­tion of the first form. We exclu­de the ca­se that the of­fi­cial form was Φανα­γορί­της — the na­me writ­ten on coins — be­cau­se in the inscrip­tions which are al­so re­liab­le sour­ces we can find both ver­sions Φανα­γορί­της and Φανα­γορεί­της. On the ot­her hand, the li­te­ra­ry sour­ces men­tion on­ly the form Φανα­γορεί­της. The rea­son for which the new form of the na­me (Φανα­γορ(ε)ί­της) was not widespread and ge­ne­ral­ly known is that the ci­ty was in dec­li­ne at that ti­me and it was soon destroyed and the­re was no par­ti­cu­lar in­te­rest for the na­me. Aut­hors who men­tio­ned the ci­ty in the fol­lowing cen­tu­ries did no­thing but to col­lect in­for­ma­tion from their pre­ce­dents. This pro­ce­du­re re­sul­ted to the sprea­ding of the old form of the na­me ra­ther than the new.

The form ΦΑΝΑΤΟΡΙΤΩΝ44 is ob­vio­us­ly a mis­ta­ke du­ring the car­ving of the cast for the coin min­ting. A si­mi­la­ri­ty between Γ and Τ in that re­gion is not pos­sib­le, be­cau­se the­re is no such evi­den­ce in ot­her inscrip­tions (mo­reo­ver, the let­ter Τ is not re­cog­ni­zab­le or even pre­sent in all the coins of ty­pe II of the clas­si­fi­ca­tion ma­de by Fro­lo­va and Ire­land: in the tab­le XXXIX:4, for example, we can clear­ly read Γ).

ñ.188 We can as­su­me that the rep­la­ce­ment of the first form of the eth­nic na­me by ano­ther as in the ca­se of the na­mes Φανα­γορεύς and Φανα­γορ(ε)ί­της was a gra­dual pro­cess and that for so­me ti­me the two na­mes co-exis­ted. A si­mi­lar ca­se can be found in near­by Pan­ti­ca­paeon, whe­re the eth­nic na­me was for­med as Παν­τι­καπαιεύς, Παν­τι­καπεύς, Παν­τι­καπαιά­της or Παν­τι­καπαΐ­της45, and at the sa­me ti­me the form Βόσ­πο­ρος was in use for the ci­ty and the eth­nic na­mes Βοσ­πο­ρανός and Βοσ­πο­ρί­της for its ci­ti­zens46.

V: Φαινα­γόρας — Φαινα­γόρειοι in Rho­des and Ar­go­lis

In a well known inscrip­tion of the 4th3rd c. B. C. from Rho­des one reads the na­me Φαινα­γόρειοι47. This na­me can­not be lin­ked di­rectly to abo­ve men­tio­ned eth­nic na­mes Φαινα­γόρευς — Φανα­γορ(ε)ί­της, be­cau­se it forms the no­mi­na­ti­ve ca­se of the sin­gu­lar num­ber as Φαινα­γόρειος. The Rho­dian inscrip­tion en­lists the na­mes of the sub­di­vi­sions of the lo­cal tri­be (phy­le), so Phai­na­go­reioi was the na­me of a pat­ra or dia­go­nia of Ka­mei­ros in Rho­des. Whe­re did they get their na­me from?

The­re are se­ve­ral op­tions re­gar­ding the ori­gin of the na­me Phai­na­go­reioi in Rho­des. It could ha­ve been de­ri­ved from a lo­cal pla­ce na­me li­ke Φάναι, which Ch. Chris­to­dou­lou be­lie­ves it was the an­cient form for the pla­ce na­me Φάνες48, who­se lo­ca­tion points to an ob­ser­va­to­ry whe­re fi­res were lighte­ned in or­der to gi­ve sig­nals. Or it could ha­ve been de­ri­ved from a lo­cal per­so­nal na­me Φαινα­γόρας, which is at­tes­ted in Rho­des in the 3rd2nd c. B. C.49 The ety­mo­lo­gy and mea­ning of the na­me Phai­na­go­ras is the sa­me as that of Pha­na­go­res -as (see abo­ve). The first op­tion seems un­li­ke­ly, but the se­cond seems mo­re lo­gi­cal.

Ano­ther two op­tions, much mo­re compli­ca­ted this ti­me, bring in­to the dis­cus­sion the areas of Ar­go­lis and of the nor­thern Euxin. Ac­cor­ding to a ve­ry an­cient tra­di­tion, the in­ha­bi­tants of the grea­test Rho­dian ci­ties were mig­rants from Ar­go­lis. It is in­te­res­ting to no­te he­re that the na­me Phai­na­go­ras is at­tes­ted in Ar­go­lis in the 2nd1st c. B. C.50 Per­haps the na­me Phai­na­go­ras — and Phai­na­go­reioi — in Rho­des is but a me­mo­ry of tho­se who had mig­ra­ted the­re from Ar­go­lis. A per­son na­med Phai­na­go­ras could ha­ve been one of them.

Re­gar­ding the north sho­res of the Euxin, one could link the na­me Phai­na­go­reioi to the Pon­tic ci­ty of Pha­na­go­reia. The re­la­tions between Rho­des and the nor­thern Euxin are at­tes­ted in ar­chaeo­lo­gy, epi­gra­phy and li­te­ra­tu­re. Rho­dian am­pho­ra was ex­por­ted to the Bos­po­ran Kingdom ñ.189 and ac­cor­ding to Aga­thar­chi­des (ed. Mül­ler C. GGM 1. P. 66) nu­me­rous mer­chants from Bos­po­rus were hea­ding to Rho­des: Ἐκ γὰρ τῆς Μαιώτι­δος λίμ­νης πολ­λοὶ τῶν φορ­τι­ζομέ­νων ἐν φορ­τη­γοῖς ἀκά­τοις δε­καταῖοι κα­τῆραν εἰς τὸν ῾Ρο­δίων λι­μένα (ἀφί­κον­το). Ano­ther clue to sup­port the re­la­tions between Rho­des and the Bos­po­ran Kingdom in ge­ne­ral or Pha­na­go­reia in par­ti­cu­lar is the eth­nic na­me Βοσ­πο­ρανοί, at­tes­ted in Rho­des51. Al­though the­re is no gram­ma­ti­cal con­nec­tion between the forms Phai­na­go­reios and Pha­na­go­reus or Pha­na­gor(e)ites, it is not hard to explain the form of the na­me at­tes­ted in Rho­des. The en­ding -ειος (showing the ori­gin or pos­ses­sion, cf.: Πυ­θαγό­ρας — Πυ­θαγό­ρειος — Πυ­θαγό­ρειοι) is com­mon for se­ve­ral eth­nic (tri­bal) na­mes, e. g. Ἀρισ­τα­γόρειοι, Μει­δαγό­ρειοι, in the sa­me inscrip­tion whe­re we find the form Φαινα­γόρειοι. Mo­reo­ver, the com­po­si­tes Φαν- and Φαιν- had the sa­me mea­ning and were both in use. The opi­nion ac­cor­ding to which both Ar­rian and Eus­ta­thi­us (or — per­haps — on­ly Eus­ta­thi­us, who com­men­ted on Ar­rian’s text) used the form Φαινα­γόρας (see abo­ve) inspi­red by the form Φαινα­γόρη which they found in Dio­ny­sius Pe­rie­ge­tes, and that Dio­ny­sius pre­fer­red to use the form Φαινα­γόρη instead of Φανα­γόρεια for met­ri­cal pur­po­ses52 is ra­ther con­vin­cing. Of cour­se we can­not exclu­de the hy­po­the­sis that Dio­ny­sius was awa­re of the form Φαινα­γόρας and sin­ce he was wil­ling to wri­te about the Pon­tic ci­ty of Pha­na­go­reia he con­fu­sed the na­mes by thin­king that all forms are lin­ked to one and the sa­me na­me and ci­ty.

VI: Conclu­sions

In brief, the ori­gi­nal na­me of the first co­lo­nist and foun­der of Φανα­γόρεια (Pha­na­go­reia) was Φανα­γόρης (Ionic). Φανα­γόρας was the At­tic ver­sion of this na­me which — to­ge­ther with the fe­ma­le per­so­nal na­me Φανα­γόρα — be­ca­me ve­ry po­pu­lar in At­hens. Φαινα­γόρας was ano­ther ver­sion of the na­me, at­tes­ted in Rho­des, Ar­go­lis and in so­me ma­nuscripts. The ci­ty’s of­fi­cial na­me was Φανα­γόρεια — so­me­ti­mes mis­ta­ken­ly at­tes­ted as Φανα­γορία. Ot­her ver­sions of this na­me (in neut­ral, plu­ral) are at­tes­ted by an­cient and me­die­val aut­hors. The eth­nic na­me of Pha­na­go­reia’s ci­ti­zens in ear­ly ti­mes was Φανα­γορεύς but la­ter the word Φανα­γορεί­της do­mi­na­ted. The link between the Pon­tic ci­ty of Pha­na­go­reia and the tri­bal or eth­nic na­mes Φαινα­γόρειοι and Βοσ­πο­ρανοὶ at­tes­ted in Rho­des is not clear.
