[1] Likewise in Photius and other lexica. The Attic dialect of the region around Athens was related to the Ionic dialects of the islands and Asia Minor; cf. iota 494 and iota 495. Ionia is the coastal region of western Asia Minor, south of Aeolis, west of Lydia, and north of Caria (Barrington Atlas map 56 grids D5-E5).
[2] Greek Anthology 7.27.1 (Antipater of Sidon), quoted also at alpha 2147; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 16); Gow and Page (vol. II, 44-45); and further extracts from this epigram at alpha 1708, alphaiota 159, and sigma 1129. For Anacreon, see alpha 1916. Gow and Page note (ibid., 44) that the use of eu)=xos here, applied to persons, is apparently unique; cf. LSJ s.v. (web address 1).
