[605] ‘Hyrcanisque Arabisque’ is the reading of MSS. mentioned by Pierius, and is partially supported by fragm. Vat., which has ‘Hyrcanisque,’ but afterwards is defective or illegible. ‘Arabis’ as if from “Arabus,” “Arabibus” being metrically unmanageable. The adj. ‘Arabus’ is cited by Charisius p. 99 from Plaut. Poen. 5. 4. 6, where the common reading is “Arabius,” from a passage, now lost, in the Bacchides of the same author, and from Lucilius, Book 25; he also quotes ‘Arabi’ as a substantive from a letter of C. Cassius to Dolabella. Serv. comp. “Aethiops,” “Aethiopus,” “Hiber,” “Hiberus.” ‘Indos:’ comp. 8. 705, G. 2. 172, Hor. 1 Od. 12. 56.
