Φρυγίου Τελεύταντος. Cp. 331: 488. Similar examples confirm this reading: fr. 796 “Ἀλφεσίβοιαν ἣν γεννήσας πατήρ” (it is improbable that Sophocles wrote “Ἀλφησίβοιαν”): Aesch. Th. 488Ἱππομέδοντος σχῆμα”: Suppl. 889 “Παρθενοπαῖος, εἶδος ἐξοχώτατος”. ( Aesch. Th. 547, “Παρθενοπαῖος Ἀρκάς”, is rejected by many critics.) Indeed, such license was not strictly confined to proper names, to judge by Aesch. Ch. 1049φαιοχίτωνες”.

Lobeck remarks that the father of Tecmessa is called Teuthras by Malela and others, Tethras by Cedrenus, and Teuthas by Tzetzes.
