Greek Original:
Antriasi: tais tois antrois philochôrousin. ophr' eiên liparôn paignion Antriadôn.
[1] Feminine dative plurals. The noun implicit is "nymphs", as in the quotation which follows here; and in fact the headword too is surely quoted from that same epigram (line 3).
[2] Greek Anthology 6.224.6 (Theodoridas); on a shell found at the seashore, dedicated to Nymphs; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (192) and vol. II (541); cf. further extracts from this epigram at alpha 346, lambda 11, and pi 952. On the feminine noun a)ntria/s (grotto dweller), here in the genitive plural, see also Phrynichus, Praeparatio sophistica 27.3 and Gow and Page (ibid.).
