Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: ...and Pind. Pyth. X. 48 iftol Si Oavfmcai I Otwv TtkctT&vTaiv oiidtv irore tpaivtrat i/i/icv amffrov. 58. Aaoyfvf)s: the epithet recurs in XI. 15, but elsewhere is found only in a quotation from an unnamed lyric poet (assumed by Bergk to be Simonides) in Aristotle, Rhet. III. 8. 59, 60. YpovTa was conjectured by Blass and KaTlvarrc by Palmer; and the former led to the identification of a fragment containing parts of the endings of 11. 59-65. 62.

There is a stop in the MS. at the end of 1. 62, which indicates that this is the proper division of the clauses.

The accent shows that fuyaivryrt is to be regarded as one word (similar in formation to iiffqpara in Hesiod, Theog. 240), not as two, with piy' adverbial. Cf. I. 16. 69. Krjiwv: or possibly Krjiov. 71.

Possibly, as Jebb adds, the reference is to the person, Cos the son of Merops. It is not clear, however, in what connexion the name is mentioned here. 72. Maia: perhaps mentioned in connexion with the worship of Apollo there, cf. Thuc. VII. 26, 2; Paus. III. 12, 8 (Jebb).... CKorreiCBPAXf..'6CCAA'6AniCYn..PIO)N0A'ANAE.'.oceinei6PH Col. more
