Notes:
[1] Tartessus (probably = biblical Tarshish) was on the Atlantic coast of Spain: see OCD(4) s.v. As to this "Birdless Lake", it is not to be confused with other such lakes (and other geographical features) elsewhere; cf. alpha 2849.
[2] See alpha 125.
[3] The first and third sentences of this entry are from a scholion on Aristophanes, Frogs 475. On the Tartesian muraena, see also tau 136 and tau 1124.
