See already alpha 1700 and the notes there.
[1] On Terpander see tau 620 and omicron 573.
[2] This far the entry in paralleled in Photius (Lexicon alpha1303 Theodoridis). On the orthios nomos see generally M.L. West, Ancient Greek Music (Oxford 1992) 156-7, 214-7; its distinctiveness lay as much in rhythm as pitch. See also omicron 575, omicron 573, omicron 574, omicron 585, alpha 1122. For the dubious relationship suggested here between dithyrambs and this strain (or rather style: West 214-7, and nu 478) see alpha 1700.
