[1] Ῥαικός is cited from Epicharmus (fr. 184 Kaibel, now 180 Kassel-Austin). Philoxenus [phi 394] fr. 588 Theodoridis reportedly said this was from Γραικός [Latin Graecus, "Greek" (gamma 447)] and the G had been dropped. Hesychius, on the other hand, says that Ῥαικός means Hellene, and the Romans have added the G.
[2] See rho 94.
