Ποσειδάωνα, the regular Homeric form: L, which has “ποσειδῶνα” here, conversely gives “ποσειδαωνίῳ” (where “Ποσειδωνίῳ” is most probable) in O. C.1494.Poseidon was as little true to Amphitritè as Zeus to Hera: Propert. 2. 26. 46 Neptunus fratri par in amore Iovi. Thus Tyro (the subject of a play by Sophocles) bore Pelias and Neleus to the sea-god. At Aegina the cult of Poseidon was combined with that of Aphroditè ( Quaest. Gr. 44: Athen. XIII. p. 590 F). τινάκτορα γαίας=“ἐννοσίγαιον, ἐνοσίχθονα”: Hom. hymn. 22. 2 “γαίης κινητῆρα καὶ ἀτρυγέτοιο θαλάσσης”.
