Notes:
Abridged from Harpokration (and Photius) s.v., commenting on Isaeus fr. 49 Thalheim.
[1] The name had several variants. Versions with initial omega seem more authentic than (as here) omicron; and plural Oai, it has been argued (L. Threatte, The Grammar of Attic Inscriptions vol.1 (Berlin 1980) 285; J.S.Traill, Demos and Trittys (Toronto 1986) 129, with 57 n.7), is to be preferred to singular Oa.
[2] Present-day Papangelaki. See generally J.S. Traill, The Political Organization of Attica (Princeton 1975) 42; D. Whitehead, The Demes of Attica (Princeton 1986) index s.v.
[3] Philochorus FGrH 328 F28. For Kephalos cf. kappa 1453; for Charops cf. (presumably) chi 134.
