ἐκ Διονύσου, by his command (O. C. 67 n.). Lycurgus, having been driven mad by Dionysus, did many violent deeds, until at last the Edonians were commanded by an oracle to imprison him in a cave on Mount Pangaeus ( Apollod. 3. 5. 1). He was afterwards torn asunder by wild horses (ib.), or devoured by panthers (Hyginus Fab. 132).

πετρώδειδεσμῷ, the cave. Cp. Plat. Legg. 864Eἐν δημοσίῳ δεσμῷ δεθείς.

κατάφαρκτος: for the spelling, cp. on 241.
