[1] In fact both the Nemean Games (for which cf. nu 151) and the Isthmian Games were biennial. The ancient city of Isthmia (Barrington Atlas map 58 grid E2) is on the eastern coast of the Isthmus of Corinth. Nemea is inland, some 25 km. to the southwest (cf. nu 149).
[2] Sc. rather than the games. Differently accented, too: *Neme/a rather than *Ne/mea.
