[sc. This word is spelled] without the [final] n among Dorians.[1] And Pindar [ does] likewise. "For I come from the countryside [a)gro/qe] from Khariklo and Philyra".[2]
Greek Original:
*ka/twqe: xwri\s tou= n para\ *dwrieu=si. kai\ *pi/ndaros o(moi/ws. a)gro/qe ga\r ne/omai para\ *xariklou=s kai\ *filu/ras.
[1] i.e. in Doric dialect. In fact ka/twqe is found outside Doric, in Middle/New Comedy (e.g. Eubulus fr. 16.1 Kock [15.1 K.-A.], Alexis fr. 128.3 Kock [133.3 K.-A.]), as well as in Doric (e.g. Theocritus, Idylls 4.44).
[2] A misquotation of Pindar, Pythian 4.102-3 (web address 1): a)gro/qe ["from the countryside"] should be a)ntro/qe ["from the cave"]. Khariklo was the centaur Chiron's wife, and Philyra his mother.
