A.ἀμφὶ δὲ Σελλοὶ σοὶ ναίουσ᾽ ὑποφῆται ἀνιπτόποδες χαμαιεῦναιIl.16.234; “τῶν ὀρείων καὶ χαμαικοιτῶν . . ΣελλῶνS.Tr.1167; “ἐν ἀστρώτῳ πέδῳ εὕδουσι, πηγαῖς δ᾽ οὐχ ὑγραίνουσιν πόδαςE.Fr.367, cf. Arist.Mete.352b2, Str.7.7.10. (Pi. (Fr.59) understood ἀμφὶ δέ σ᾽ Ἑλλοί in Il. l.c., but this is an error acc. to Aristarch., cf. Hsch. s.v. Σελλήεις, though countenanced by Id.s.v. Ἕλλα and Ἕλα, where it is apparently derived from Lacon. ἕλλα seat (sc. of Zeus at Dodona).)
