Since the Greek name Platonos is shortened Plato, Stratonos Strato and Strabonos Strabo in English, Thrasonos - the name of this emperor - should IMHO be shortened Thraso, not Thrason. --Sponsianus 23:56, 31 July 2005 (UTC)


I am new to this, so pardon my not knowing how this discussion works, but isn't Thraso the name of a character in a play by Terence, which was based on a play by Menander? How is it possible that the king and his son have the same names? 12.231.153.150 (talk) 12:14, 1 September 2010 (UTC) Jeanette

Yes, this connection has been noted. The playwright Menander seems to have used names similar to "Thraso"/"Thrasonos" on several occasions. Sponsianus (talk) 20:32, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
