Ἰοχέαιρα: ἡ τοῖς ἰοῖς χαίρουσα, ὑποδεχομένη. ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: σοὶ μὲν καμπύλα τόξα καὶ ἰοχέαιρα φαρέτρα, δῶρα παρὰ Προμάχου, Φοῖβε, τάδε κρέμαται.
[1] Epithet of Artemis; cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 5.53, where it appears as such; also other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon. The etymological gloss from χαίρειν (repeated in the scholia to 5.447) is dubious; a derivation from χέειν is more likely.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.9.1-2 (Mnasalcus).
