[*th/na means the same as] e)kei=na.[1] Theocritus [writes]: "sweet [is] the whispered music and that pine tree, goatherd."[2]
Greek Original:
*th/na: e)kei=na. *qeo/kritos: a(du/ ti to\ yiqu/risma kai\ a( pi/tus, ai)po/le, th/na.
The entry, Adler reports, is lacking in mss AF (but a marginal addition in A).
[1] The headword th/na is the Doric equivalent of Attic-Ionic e)kei/nh (feminine nominative singular), not of e)kei=na (neuter nominative/accusative plural). This demonstrative occurs in Delphian, Heraclean, Argolic (Aegina), Megarian, as well as in Sicilian Doric writers (Buck 101). See LSJ entry at web address 1 below.
