Εὐρωπέα: from Europus. There were towns of that name in Emathia (Thuc. ii. 100), Media (founded by the Macedonians, Strabo 524), and Syria (Steph. Byz.). Mys was, however, clearly a Carian (ch. 135. 3; Paus. ix. 23. 6). There was a town in Caria named Euromus (Strabo 635; Steph. Byz. s.v.), hence Stein suggested Εὐρωμέα here, needlessly, since Pausanias (l. c.) also reads Εὐρωπέα, and Steph. Byz. (s. v.) says Europus was another name for the Carian town Idrias.

For a Carian as interpreter being δίγλωσσος cf. Thuc. viii. 85.

σφι. Mardonius and the Persians; cf. ch. 136. 2. Some would forbid access to a barbarian.
