This entry draws on the scholia (e cod. Genevensi gr. 44; see below) to Homer, Iliad 1.12 (web address 1); cf. same or similar entries in Hesychius, Photius, and elsewhere; and see Etymologicum Magnum s.v. qoh/.
[1] cf. theta 404.
[2] No Homeric line corresponds exactly to this quotation. The present translator suggests Iliad 17.708 (web address 2), reading me\n dh\ instead of e)n d’ au)= and, more significantly nhusi\n ("ships") instead of nh/soisin ("islands"). Adler, however, pointed to Odyssey 15.299: e)/nqen d' au)= nh/soisin e)piproe/hke qoh|=sin.
