pv\r^pa is a conjecture of RohPs in lx (Chios v) : it is certain that
only two letters are gone, the inscription being written o-rot^SoV.
navTaprjs, cxxxi (Olymp. Gela vi), is normal. We have Ti/xdp^?
and Tijuupeos, Anth. Pal. vii, 652. Hei'/rdpeos in 181 can be read with
synizesis. These and most names in -dp^s are West-Greek forms
of -rip-q^, and have nothing to do with 'Ap^s- Compare the pairs
