page 9 note 1 It may explain the reading ᾔ νὰρ;ιστον reported to have been found in one MS. by Ursinus. This view requires all the support it can get, as may be judged from Kynaston's note (‘ ἀκρἑτιστον means having lunched, and so must be taken with ἐπὶ ξηρῖσι as a powerful expression for having had nolunch at all’).

page 10 note 1 καθίζειν is elsewhere intransitive in Theocritus (1.12, 5.32), an argument, though hardly a decisive one, in favour of the former rendering. The boy, however, plays a purely passive part, and seems for that reason less likely to be the subject.
