The qualifier attached to H.'s name is obscure. No toponym called Perineum/Perinaium is otherwise attested (and it might, rather, be a patronymic: DW), but Buehler p. 337 emends the transmitted *Perinai/w (*Perine/w in the Suda) to *Terinai/w. For Ter(e)ina, in Bruttium (S. Italy), see Barrington Atlas map 46 grid D4; and for the ethnikon Tereinaios cf. [Plutarch], Lives of the Ten Attic Orators 845C.
