From the scholia to Homer, Iliad 16.233, where Zeus of Dodona is apostrophized.
For the adjective see already delta 1445; and for Dodonian Zeus see also under lambda 121.
Dodona (delta 1447) in Epeiros (NW Greece) passed from Thesprotian to Molossian control in Hellenistic times but may have passed back to the Thesprotians after Rome's mass-depopulation of Molossia.
