[154] Δάλιε The Delphian Apollo is also Delian—having passed, according to the Ionic legend, from his native Delos, through Attica, to Delphi (Aesch. Eum. 9). A Boeotian legend claimed Tegyra as the birthplace of Apollo: Plut. Pelop. 16 ἐνταῦθα μυθολογοῦσι τὸν θεὸν γενέσθαι, καὶ τὸ μὲν πλησίον ὄρος Δῆλος καλεῖται. We can scarcely say, however, with Schneidewin that Δάλιε here “bewrays the Athenian,” when we remember that the Theban Pindar hails the Delphian Apollo as Λύκιε καὶ Δάλου ἀνάσσων ΦοῖβεPind. P. 1.39).

ἰήιε (again in 1096), invoked with the cry ἰή: cp. Soph. Trach. 221ἰὼ ἰὼ Παιάν.” Soph. has the form παιών, παιήων as = “a healer” (not with ref. to Apollo), Soph. Phil. 168, 832.
