Greek Original:
Γάνος: ὁ οἶνος. Πὰν ἀγέλην: Νύμφαι πίδακα: Βάκχε γάνος. καί, γάνος ἀμπέλου, ὁ οἶνος, βότρυος ἕλικα παυσίπονον. Γάνος δὲ θηλυκῶς, τὸ πρὸς τῇ Θρᾴκῃ ὄρος ἡ Γάνος. Γάνος καὶ Γανιάδα χωρία ἐστὶ Θρᾳκικά.
[1] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Frogs 1320: see below.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.158.4; cf. nu 591.
[3] Aristophanes, Frogs 1320-1 (web address 1).
[4] Abridged from Harpokration s.v., citing Aeschines 3.82 for them. Some have thought 'Ganias' an invention, but Scylax has a Ganiai. In any event, Mt Ganos lies along the western shore of the Propontis.
