[sc. Found] among the Amastrian [monuments].[1]
And look in the [entry] 'Manaim'.[2]
Greek Original:
Χεῖρες χαλκαῖ: ἐν τοῖς Ἀμαστριανοῖς. καὶ ζήτει ἐν τῷ Μαναί̈μ.
To judge from mu 131 (the cross-reference given) the headword phrase refers to a monumental sculpture in Constantinople. See further, next note.
[1] Adler reports that one ms (F = Laurentianus 55.1) reads Ἀμαστρίσι for Ἀμαστριανοῖς . Be that as it may, for the Amastrians (of the S. Black Sea coast) see e.g. Strabo 12.3.1-10; Barrington Atlas map 86 grid C2. Their relevance here is because of the public square in Constantinople known as the Amastrianon/Amastrianum.
