[1] The Carian city of that name (present-day Davas Kale); for the ethnikon see Stephanus of Byzantium s.v.; RE 4A.2 col.1839.
[2] It has been argued that there was no historian of this name from Tabai, the writings credited to him here belonging to Marsyas of Philippi (mu 228). See Laqueur col.1999, who associated the present Marsyas with the priest of Heracles mentioned by Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 11.467C (11.31 Kaibel). Heckel [below] p.450, however, has urged caution and is inclined to accept the text of the Suda without alteration.
