Etymology Not stated. Aglaophamus is a masculine Classical Greek name, and there is an Orphic priest recorded to have that name (see Orphism (religion) in Wikipedia).. Orphism is an ancient Greek religion. However, the name "Aglaophamus" was used by Christian Lobeck, a 19th century historian of Greek religion, as the single- word title for an influential work of 1829 examining Classical Greek religions. References to this work swamp search engine results for usages of "Aglaophamus". It is possible Kinberg knew of this work. [details]
