[417] The list of the Oceanids is borrowed, in the main, from Theog. 349 f., from which passage, together with the quotation of Paus.iv. 30. 4, the names in the text are restored. The writer has taken 16 out of the 41 names in Hesiod, adding Leucippe, Phaeno, Melite, Iache, and Rhodope. Of these, Melite appears as a Nereid in Theog. 246 and in the interpolated passage Il. 18.42. For the meaning of the names see Goettling-Flach on l.c., PrellerRobert i.^{2} p. 552.
