1. The Peiraeus was the principal seaport of Athens. In ancient times it was connected with Athens by the long walls :built by Themistocles after the Persian war. It was the favorite home of the metics, or resident foreigners, of whom Cephalus and his, son, the orator Lysias, were honorable representatives.
The Peiraeus is at present entirely a modern city, having been rebuilt since 1835. It is situated, as in antiquity, on the Saronic Gulf, five miles southwest of Athens, with which it is connected by a railway. In commercial importance the town has overtaken and outstripped its Greek rivals, Patras alone excepted. There may always he seen in its deep, sheltered harbor many merchantmen from distant ports, and occasionally men-of-war flying the flags of various nations.
2. Glaucon and Adeimantus, sons of Aristen and Perictione, were brothers of Plato.
3. The festival was in honor of Bendis, a Thracian goddess, generally identified with Artemis. She had a temple at the Peiraeus. Her worship there appears at first to have been confined to the Thraciau metics, but, according to Plato, it became a national cult somewhat later than the middle of the fifth century B. C. The readiness of the Greeks of this epoch to recognize new divinities may be inferred from the Bacchae of Euripides. The festival of Bendis, the Bendidea (see Republic p59.), was held on the 20th of Thargelion (June).
