AGYRIUM

AGYRIUM
Siciliae urbs. Priscis Graecis Α᾿γύριον, Ptol. vero Α᾿γούριον vocat. Stephano Α᾿γύρηνα dicitur, unde vulgare vocabulum hodie Agirone. Populi Agrinenses Tullio, Or. 2. in Verr. c. 65. Agrini Plinio l. 3. c. 8. In Excerptis Legat. Diodor. Sic. l. 22. Α᾿γυραϊοι procul dubio mendose pro Α᾿γυριναῖοι Origo huius oppidi tam vetusta est, ut Herculis fabulis admiscuerint prisci mortales. Quâ de re vide Diodor. Sic. cuius patria fuit. l. 4. et 14. et 16. Posterioribus etiam temporibus celebrem fuisse urbem patet ex Cicer. Verr. 3. Agyrinensis est imprimis honesta Siciliae civitas, hominum ante hunc Praetorem locupletium, summorumque aratorum. Sed prae omnibus aliis rebus maxime celebrem reddidit ille, qui sub initium operis sui ita scribit, Η῾μεῖς γὰρ ἐξ Α᾿γυρίου τὸ μένος τῆς Σικελίας ὄντες. Docti sciunt quem velim. Nic. Lloydius.
