πεπλεγμένα: cf. ch. 63. 1 n. and Xen. Anab. v. 4. 13κράνη σκύτινα οἷάπερ τὰ Παφλαγονικά”. These Eastern Λίγυες are puzzling. Lycophron called Cytaea (mod. Kutais) in Colchis a Ligurian city, which leads many modern writers to identify them with Strabo's Λῆγαι (p. 503), the modern Lesghians in the Eastern Caucasus (cf. the Sigynnae, v. 9 n.). But the tribes here connected with them belong to the middle and lower Halys, and this people might have disappeared from the Halys basin after the Gallic immigration (278 B.C.), as apparently do the Western Matieni (i. 72. 2 n.).

Μαριανδυνοί: cf. iii. 90. 2 n.

Σύριοι: cf. i. 6. 1 n., 72. 1; Cappadocians.
