[1] Perhaps instead of boh/tores ('shouters') -- obelized by Theodoridis in Photius s.v. -- this gloss should be both=res ('pasturers') or boskh/tores (as in the Etymologicum Genuinum, championed by Dindorf); however, it might be an attempt at an etymology for the headword.
[2] This phrase, kai\ dw/tores, occurs only in a minority of the manuscripts, Adler reports, and may be included in them simply for the noun's similarity in form with the headword; cf. delta 1486 (where Doter is a proper name).
[3] Greek Anthology 6.262.1-2, 4 (Leonidas of Tarentum), a cattleman dedicates spoils from a marauding animal; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 122-123) and (vol. II, 357). Gow and Page suggest (ibid.) that the dedication is probably to Pan and that the predatory animal in question, not named by the epigrammatist, is almost certainly a wolf.
