Comment: 	Re: SHK 16.1637 Timon

On pronunciation of Timon, I suggest that it is similar to Simon; that 
is, with a long 'i' with the accent on the first syllable, 'Ti'.  I 
believe the word would need a double 'm' to become Tim mon.

This as I see it is modern English usage, but how Shakespeare pronounced 
it I know not.

Cheers,
Reg.
