Apollonius Rhodius

1 Κάνωβος. Steph. Byz. s.v. Κόρινθος

. . . καὶ σύνθετον Κορινθιουργής ὡς Ἀττικουργής. Ἀπολλώνιος ὁ Ῥόδιος Κανώβῳ·1

Κορινθιουργές ἐστι κιόνων σχῆμα

2 Κάνωβος. Steph. Byz. s.v. χώρα

. . . Ἀπολλώνιος ἐν τῷ Κανώβῳ·

τέρψει δὲ νηῶν ὁ γλυκύς σε χωρίτῃς πλόος κομίζων δῶρα πλουσίου Νείλου.

3 Κάνωβος. Schol. ad Nicand. Ther. 305

καὶ Ἀπολλώνιος δέ φησι τῶν πληγέντων ὑπὸ αἱμορροΐδος ῥήγνυσθαι καὶ τὰς οὐλάς.1 Schol. ad Nicand. Ther. 312: ἡ αἱμορροῒς ἔδακε Κάνωβον, τὸν κυβερνήτην τοῦ Μενελάου, καθεύδοντα ἐν τῷ πρὸς Αἴγυπτον αἰγιαλῷ, καὶ ἐνῆκεν αὐτῷ ἰόν.




1 Canobus. Stephanus of Byzantium, entry for “Corinth”

and the compound “of Corinthian-workmanship” is like “of Attic-workmanship.” Apollonius Rhodius says in his Canobus:

of Corinthian workmanship is the form of the columns

2 Canobus. Stephanus of Byzantium, entry for “country”

Apollonius says in his Canobus:

And the sweet voyage of ships will delight you, the one bringing your countrymen the gifts of the rich Nile.

3 Canobus. Scholium to Nicander, Theriaca 305

And Apollonius says that when people are bitten by the “blood-letter” even their scars burst.

Scholium to Nicander, Theriaca 312:

the “blood-letter” bit Canobus, the helmsman of Menelaus, while he was sleeping on the beach that faces Egypt, and injected its poison into him.
