[Meaning someone] from the city of Edes(s)a.[1]

Greek Original:
Ἐδεσηνός: ἀπὸ πόλεως Ἐδέσης. παρὰ τῷ Ἡρωδιανῷ δὲ διὰ τοῦ η.
[1] There was an Edes(s)a in northern Greece, but the one meant here is more probably the one in Syria/Osrhoene, for which see epsilon 207.
[2] As indeed it is here. This, Adler reports, is a marginal comment in ms M, presumably generated by the alternative spelling Ἐδεσινός (in the grammarian Choeroboscus and elsewhere).
