[Someone] from a place [sc. called Kolassai].
Greek Original:
*kolassaeu/s: a)po\ to/pou.
For the plural of this see kappa 1932, which in isolation might have suggested that the 'place' in question is Rhodes. However, one sees both there and frequently elsewhere that Kolass- and Koloss- are variants; so more probably the present entry refers to Kolossai. This city lay on a tributary of the upper Maeander valley near Laodicea-ad-Lycum in Karia, W. Turkey; Barrington Atlas map 65 grid B2.
