SOAEMIS

SOAEMIS
Graecis Σοαιμὶς, item Σοαιμιὰς et Σοασμία, dicta est, quae Semiamira vulgo, mater Heliogabali, soror Mamaeae, quâ Alexander Seu. genitus est. Ita enim herodian. l. 5. c. 3. et reliqui Graeci. In nummis quoque, IULIA. SOAEMIAS. AUG. Symiam Syriam vocat Eutropius, l. 8. c. 13. Nempe Latini, qui illis temporibus raras diphthongos ponebant, scripsere Soemia, inde contractio sequuta est, Soemia, postea vero diphthongus illa degeneravit in y. unde Symia dici coeptum. Neque unquam aliter in Palatinis codicib. quam Symiamira, scriptum reperit Salmasius: numquam Semiamira, ut communiter excusum est. Haec de capite nominis, praefatus Auctor. Not. ad Iul. Capitolin. in Opilio Macrino, c. 9. de cauda autem myrae vel syra, videndus Ios. Scaliger Animadversionib. ad Eusebium.
