[4] 28. φαρμάκῳ—the story was that be drank bull's blood: Thuc. evidently thinks it a foolish tale, Aristoph. Eq. 83.

4. ἄρτον ... οἷνον ... ὄψον—according to a Persian custom: cf. Plat. Alc. i. p. 123 B ‘he said (the person meant is perhaps Xenophon) he passed a district which the inhabitants called ζωνὴν τῆς βασιλέως γυναικός: and another called “the mirror” ... καὶ ὀνόματ᾽ ἔχειν ἑκάστους τῶν τόπων ἀπὸ ἑκάστου τῶν κόσμων.’ Lampsacns and Myus belonged to the Delian League, so Them. cannot have actually enjoyed their revenues.
