Plut. Lyc. 17.3 contains an obscure statement about the melleirenes and eirenes. Plutarch must have been familiar, albeit imperfectly and perhaps only indirectly, with the names of the annual age classes of the Spartan ephebia testified to in later grammatical texts. The contribution reassesses the meaning and denotative value of such names, which Aristophanes of Byzantium must have known through late-classical or proto-Hellenistic sources.
