Vetting Status: high
[It was] customary for the ancients to speak of the gods [by saying] 'he in Melite', 'he in Klaros'; but in reference to humans [it would be] 'he from Melite', 'he from Klaros'. Similarly also in reference to every city and country.
Greek Original:
*)en *kla/rw|: o(/ti su/nhqes toi=s palaioi=s to\ le/gein e)pi\ me\n tw=n qew=n, o( e)n *meli/th|, o( e)n *kla/rw|: e)pi\ de\ a)nqrw/pwn, o( e)k *meli/ths, o( e)k *kla/rou. w(sau/tws kai\ e)pi\ pa/shs po/lews kai\ xw/ras.
From the scholia to Aristophanes, Frogs 501, where the phrase ou(k *meli/ths mastigi/as occurs (of a human); cf. mu 262.
The principal deity 'in' Melite, an inner-city deme of Athens, was Herakles; the one 'in' Klaros, on the coast of Asia Minor south of Kolophon, was the oracular Apollo. (As an epithet of Apollo, *Kla/rios occurs in Hesychius kappa2869. It is also attested for Zeus -- Aeschylus, Supplices 360; Pausanias 8.53.9: see LSJ at web address 1 -- but with a long alpha, i.e. as a Dorian dialect word connected with klh=ros, and thus meaning "[equally] distributing" without reference to a cultic place.)
