[3] ἵπΠους: Artemis was called “εὑρίππα” at Pheneos in Arcadia, Paus.viii. 14. 5.Cf. Pind. Ol.iii. 26Λατοῦς ἱπποσόα θυγάτηρ”, id. fr. 89ἵππων ἐλάτειραν”. More often, in art, she drives stags or deer (e.g. on the frieze of the temple of Apollo at Bassae).

ἄρσασα: for the verb (“ἄρδω”) and construction the editors quote Euphor. fr. 75 (Mein.)οἳ δ᾽ οὔπω Σιμόεντος Ἀχαιίδας ἤρσαμεν ἵππους”.

Μέλητος: preserved by M alone. The river Meles flowed by Smyrna, and is to be identified with a stream at Bournoubat, near Old Smyrna (Frazer on Paus.vii. 5. 12). Homer was said to have composed his poems in a grotto on its banks ( Paus. ib.).
