Notes:
[1] For Rhaethou (sic) -- present-day Tor -- and the surrounding territory of the Rhaethenoi see Ptolemy 5.16.3; Barrington Atlas Map 76 grid D5; and cf. mu 147. Hemsterhuis suggested emending the spelling to Ῥαιθώ ; manuscript A reads Ῥαηθοῦ , F Ῥαϊθου .
[2] According to tradition, a group of monks was martyred by desert Bedouins at this location (commemorated on January 14 in Catholic and Orthodox calendars). The phrase is found in the heading of their biography in the Imperial Menologia (11th century).
