Abstract

Fr. 65 Braswell-Billerbeck of the grammarian Epaphroditus (Et. Gen. s.v. ”Imbrasoj) appears to belong to his commentary on the Iliad rather than to that on the Callimachean Aitia: the real lemma of the etymological entry word refers to a Homeric term (the patronimic Imbrasides of the Thracian hero Peiros: Ilias IV 520); the explanation involves the North-Egean (and near to Thrace) island Imbros; thus the context of the Epaphroditean interpretation seems to be coherently Thracian. Therefore the provenance of fr. 65 from the commentary on the Aitia, viz. fr. 599 Pf., which regards Samian traditions, is to be excluded.
