BOOK I.

1101 (return)
[ i.e. God of embarcation.]

1102 (return)
[ Or, reading EKTOTHEN, "they strongly girded the ship outside with a well-twisted rope." In either case there is probably no allusion to YPOZOMATA (ropes for undergirding) which were carried loose and only used in stormy weather.]

1103 (return)
[ i.e. God of the shore.]

1104 (return)

1105 (return)
[ Samothrace.]

1106 (return)
[ i.e. god of disembarcation.]

1107 (return)
[ Cleite means illustrious.]

1108 (return)
[ i.e. to avoid grinding it at home.]

1109 (return)
[ [Rhea].]

BOOK II.

1201 (return)
[ i.e. [Polydeuces].]

1202 (return)

1205 (return)
[ i.e. the bedchamber.]

1206 (return)
[ The north-west wind.]

1207 (return)
[ Called "Mossynes".]

1208 (return)
[ i.e. without exacting gifts from the bridegroom. So in the "Iliad" ix. 146: [Agamemnon] offers Achilles any of his three daughters ANAEONOS.]

BOOK III.

1301 (return)
[ i.e. the fight between the gods and the [giants].]

BOOK IV.

1401 (return)
[ The allusion is to Sesotris. See Herodotus ii. 102 foll.]

1402 (return)
[ Or, reading EMETEREN, "into our sea". The Euxine is meant in any case and the word Ionian is therefore wrong.]

1405 (return)
[ The "Symplegades" are referred to, where help was given by [Athena], not by Hera. It is strange that no mention is made of the "Planctae", properly so called, past which they are soon to be helped. Perhaps some lines have fallen out.]

1407 (return)
[ i.e. the Wanderers.]

1408 (return)
[ A fabulous metal, resembling gold in appearance.]

1409 (return)
[ i.e. the Sickle-island.]

1410 (return)
[ The old name of [Corinth].]

1411 (return)
[ This seems to be the only possible translation, but the optative is quite anomalous. We should expect EKOMIZES.]

1412 (return)
[ An old name of the Peloponnesus.]

1413 (return)
[ i.e. the isle of Revealing.]
