[1] Homer, Iliad 5.397, where however editors prefer to interpret the phrase as e)n *pu/lw| "in Pylos" (cf. pi 3167). The note comes from scholia on this verse.
[2] These are added as examples of other nouns where Homer uses a second-declension (thematic stem) form instead of a first-declension (a-stem) form.
