Μεσσαπίου—one of the three divisions of Iapygia, Messapia, extended from Tarentum to Brundisium.

Ἄρτᾳ—he seems to have been a man of note in his day, for Athenaeus reters to him as μέγας καὶ λαμπρός.

δυνάστῃς—suggested a foreign, un-Greek form of government. Hence the bad sense of δυναστεία, which is used, for instance, of the Thirty.

Μεταπόντιον—there are ruins of a temple on the site. The Romans destroyed it for having sided with Hannibal. Pausanias saw a theatre and walls standing. Pythagoras died there.
