Mecone[edit]

Mecone was an early name for Sicyon. 94.211.59.112 (talk) 10:58, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Did you read that somewhere, or how did you get that "info"? According to the Greek historians, the original name of Sicyon, after the first king, was Aegialea. It was renamed Sicyon for a later king, they say. Til Eulenspiegel /talk/ 13:34, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Mark P.O. Morford & Robert J. Lenardon, Classical Mythology (Oxford 2011) p. 109. On page 87, it reads that Zeus and Prometheus quarreled at Mecone (and they say that Mecone is an early name for Sicyon). In the seventh edition, if you can get it, all of this is on page 84 and 106. Don't be condescending by putting info in quotation marks. 94.211.59.112 (talk) 14:03, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Don't be arrogant by telling me how to punctuate. You do you. Til Eulenspiegel /talk/ 14:09, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Is this a prank? Care to comment on Mecone? 94.211.59.112 (talk) 14:33, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Strabo 8.6.25 says, "They used to call Sikyon 'Mekone', and still earlier 'Aigialeis'." The identification of Sikyon–Mekone with the location of the division between gods and mortals is attested at Schol. Pindar, Nemea 9.123b.  davidiad { t } 22:22, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
Both names are wrong the name was Mycone, given to the by the abundance of the poppy crop in the surrounding area, this is justified at Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page).
