[1] In central Greece; disputed between Attica and Boeotia. Also called Oropia (omega 204). See further under tau 322 (and chi 174), and generally M.H. Hansen in M.H. Hansen & T.H. Nielsen (eds.), An Inventory of Archaic and Classical Poleis (Oxford & New York 2004) 448-449, no.214.
[2] (Addendum lacking in mss AF, and placed earlier in S.) Adler cross-references with omega 202, i.e. on the assumption that unaspirated Oros here is aspirated Horos there. Perhaps so, but even if so, this suggested etymology is fanciful in the extreme.
