Notes:
On Cappadocia see generally OCD(4) s.v.: the name "at one time designated the whole region between Lake Tatta [a.k.a. Tuz Gölü, Salt Lake] and the Euphrates [cf. epsilon 3810], and from the Euxine Sea to Cilicia; but the northern part became 'Cappadocian Pontus' or simply 'Pontus', and the central and southern part Greater Cappadocia." In western Cappadocia, the shallow, hypersaline Lake Tatta is located in central Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey, Barrington Atlas map 63 grid C3). The Euxine Sea is the modern Black Sea, and Cilicia is a coastal region of southern Asia Minor (cf. kappa 1605).
[1] That is, the others have omega for the vowel in the final syllable. This statement is not completely true; exceptions include φλόξ ('flame' or 'phlox'), πάνδοξ ('innkeeper'), and ἄλοξ ('furrow').
[2] Not identified by Adler, but identifiable via the TLG as a derogatory term applied by Gregory of Nazianzus to Georgios, the Arian bishop of Alexandria (Encomium of Saint Athanasios 21.16, PG 35.1097); cf. Theophanes Confessor, Chronographia 37.29-30, and ps.-Zonaras 1159.15. Another phrase from this passage appears at mu 36.
