[840] Ἱππόθοος: slain by Ajax, 17.288 ff.

Πελασγῶν: a part settled in Greece proper, a part must have remained in Asia Minor. They gave to many of their towns the name Larisa (rock-citadel). The geographer Stephanus of Byzantium enumerates ten towns of this name, besides the citadel Larissa of Argos. Strabo (xiii. 620) enumerates three in Asia Minor: one in sight of Ilios, another near Ephesus, and a third near Cyme; he holds the last to be the one in the poet's mind here, because of 17.301 where Ilippothous falls “τῆλ̓ ὀπὸ Λαρίσης ἐριβώλακος”.
