Athronges (Α᾿θρόγγης), a person of mean extraction, and by occupation a shepherd, who, without any other advantages than great bodily stature and undaunted hardihood, raised a body of banditti in Judaea, in connection with his four brothers, during the rule of Gratus, so powerful that they at last assumed royalty, and were with difficulty subdued in detail and captured by the successive procurators (Joseph. Ant. 17, 10, 7). In the parallel account (War, 2, 4, 3) he is called Athrongaeus (Α᾿θρογγαῖος).
