THRIAE

THRIAE
tres Nymphae, Apollinis, nutrices, Parnassum incoluêre, teste Philochorô apud Zenodotum, unde postea receptum, ut calculi sortesque divinorum Thriae, et qui thrias in urnam divinam iaciebant, Θριοβόλοι dicerentur. Vide Erasmum in Adag.
Πολλοὶ θριοβόλοι, παῦροι δέ τε μάντιες ἄνδρες,
et supra, ubi de Divinatione et Sortibus.
