Epigonoi was also the name used of the Iranian soldiers in Alexander the Great's army, in the latter part of his reign, who had been trained to fight in a Macedonian phalanx.

Do we know why? Younger than the other troops or something?

I suppose the use of quotations (including the meta-quotation "If you want to appear intelligent, quote someone who is") is an example of epigony.
