For this headword in another sense see alpha 2079.
[1] So too in Photius; and cf. Pollux 3.91.
[2] As de Boor pointed out, the source appears, rather, to be Appian (Punica 106). For Polybius (36.16) see mu 245, and the next note.
[3] As the mu 244 entry (where this sentence reappears) shows, this is a textually corrupt version of the name Massinissa, king of Numidia (238-148).
