Abstract

HOT SPRINGS AND HEALING: A PRELIMINARY ANSWER In Mnemosyne S. IV, vol. IX (1956), 193 sqq. I published an article dealing inter alia with the cult of Artemis near hot springs. Two comments on points of detail were written concerning this article. The first in the same year (p. 335) by Professor Kamerbeek, who pointed out that e6&xoog = 'inclined to give ear', and is not derived from whereas I had said (I.c., 197 n. 3): "would point to ... healing". The criticism is fully justified, and due to a curious misunderstanding, which is entirely my fault. I disregarded the derivation from 1), but a note made some years ago about the epithet ran: "belonging in particular to deities of healing" 2). I should have preconceived the obvious misunderstanding and made the point clear. Checking now the many other synonyms on -'Ý¡xooc; and -dcxoos 3 ) , I found them to occur as epithets of various other deities, and it seems there- fore preferable to drop the idea altogether. More serious is the note by Dr. H. W. Pleket in Mnemosyne S. IV, vol XIII (ig6o), 240 sq., on the patronage of the hot springs at Icarian Therma.
