[232] Non Ipsea parens. Manuscripts differ here very widely; whence there is room to suspect that the text has been corrupted. There is still the greater reason for this opinion, because we do not mect with one instance in all antiquity of Medea's mother being mentioned under the name of Ipsea. We may therefore, relying upon the authority of Hesiod, Apollonius, Apollodorus, and Hyginus, instead of Ipsea, read Idya; this being the general opinion, though some mention her by a different name.
