[72] MopsopiĆ¢ urbe; a Mopsopian or Attic city; for Attica, as Strabo informs us, was called Mopsopia from one of its kings. The urbs Mopsopia must be understood of Aphidna, where Theseus carried her, after he had stolen her away.

Taeuaris soror; Helen, so called from a promontory in Peloponnesus. Some think that instead of Taenaris we ought to read Tyndaris, from Tyndareus.
