[1] Clement of Alexandria, Protrepticus p.16.5 Staehlin; see already beta 195. In both entries, however, the Suda mss distort these names (from Eleusinian mythology): 'Demo' is Deo, i.e. Demeter (delta 483), and 'Bauo' is probably Baubo (cf. under delta 1598).
[2] An unrelated but similar-looking word, the dative singular of the noun dhmo/s, a word commonly used in Homer (e.g. Iliad 23.750: web address 1) for animal fat. See already delta 453.
