[1] cf. under alpha 787, alpha 788, eta 304. The LSJ s.v. identifies this plant with the genus Urtica (web address 1).
[2] For Knidos, on the SW coast of Asia Minor south of Halikarnassos, see also (e.g.) delta 442, eta 521, lambda 555, nu 28. But NB: Adler's upper-case 'Knidos' might mislead; Theognostus has 'the crop/fruit of the knide'.
