[445] Κρανάῃ: perhaps this name was invented for the situation, cf. v. 201; at least the ancients were completely at a loss concerning it. Strabo thought it was the small island Helena between Attica and Cos. Others thought it to be Cythera, south of Sparta. In the second century of our era, with reference to this passage, the name “Κρανάη” was given to a small island in the Laconian gulf.

446=“Ξ 328. — ὡς”: refers to “ὧδε” v. 442.
