[1] At the foot of Mt Oita in central Greece was an ancient city called Trachis, and the headword of the present entry perhaps presents this in the accusative case. It may, however, be a nominative, and, if so, the lesser-known Trachin further south, in Phokis (Strabo 9.3.14, etc.)
[2] i.e. in the play of this name by Sophocles; cf. epsilon 1153, pi 2046.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; geography; tragedy; women
