Oidipoes is the Dutch and Frisian name for Oedipus, and is also found as an older Afrikaans form, still occurring in the 1960s (see for instance P.J. Conradie[1]), though by the mid 1960s it appears to have been replaced by "Oidipus" or even "Oedipus", also in the newer dictionaries.

See Oedipus

Oidipoes is also the title of an Afrikaans adaptation of the Sophocles play by Ben Dehaeck.
