II. Ἄπιος, α, ον, Apian, i.e. Peloponnesian, said (in this sense) to be derived from Ἆπις, Apis, a mythical king of Argos, A.Supp.260, cf. Paus.2.5.7; Ἀπία γῆ, Ἀπία χθών, or Ἀπία alone, the Peloponnese, esp. Argolis, A.Ag.256, S.OC1303, Ath.14.650b, etc.; cf.Ἀπίς prob. in A.R.4.1564. [The former word has α^, the latter α_; yet S.OC1685 uses signf. 1 with α_, and later Ep. Poets have signf. 11 with α^, cf. Rhian.13.] (Commonly derived from ἀπό, as ἀντίος from ἀντί; and Hsch. expl. ἐξ ἀπίης γαίης by ἀλλοτρίας ξένης μακρὰν οὔσης, cf. Str.8.6.9.)
