γλαυκῶπις, with grayish-blue eyes: the Homeric epithet has been suggested by “γλαυκᾶς” in 701. The altar of “Ζεὺς Μόριος”, otherwise called “Καταιβάτης”, was in the Academy, where there was also a shrine of Athena close to the “μορίαι” (Apollodorus ap. schol.); hence there was a special reason for the conjunction of the deities here.
