The apparent coherence of this entry -- repeated from the perspective of Amaia at alpha 1541 -- is thrown into some confusion by the fact that it is Demeter who has the name Azesia in a fragment of Sophocles (981 Pearson, cited by LSJ s.v.[web address 1]); cf. Zenobius 4.20.
Kalamaia was a festival of Demeter and Persephone at Eleusis (LSJ s.v.).
