Table of Contents:
1 Strabo means the territory of Methone (as often).
2 Now Cape Gallo.
3 The Hermionic Asine was in Argolis, southeast of Nauplia (see Pauly-Wissowa, s.v. "Asine").
4 See footnote on "Thyrides," 8. 5. 1.
5 See Map IX in Curtius' Peloponnesos at the end of vol. ii.
6 Or "Boetylus" (see critical note on opposite page.)
7 Now Kalamata.
8 8. 3. 28.
9 "It" can hardly refer to Pherae, for Pausanias appears not to have seen, or known of, a temple of Athena there. Hence Strabo seems to mean that there was such a temple somewhere else, on the banks of the river Nedon (now River of Kalamata). The site of the temple is as yet unkown (see Curtius, Peloponnesos ii., p. 159).
10 "Poeässsa" is otherwise unknown. Some of the MSS. spell the name "Poeëessa" in which case Strabo might be referring to the "Poeëessa" in the island of Ceos: "Near Poeëessa, between the temple" (of Sminthian Apollo) "and the ruins of Poeëessa, is the temple of Nedusian Athena, which was founded by Nestor when he was on his return from Troy" (10. 5. 6). But it seems more likely that the three places here mentioned as colonized by Teleclus were all somewhere in Messenia.
11 Otherwise unknown.
