Comment Kaldellis (2015: 77): "The scholion concerns the paianismos, which was the singing of the paian, the battle cry raised by Greek armies before battle. The mss. have paionismos, with an omega, but there were variants (esp. in Herodotos) with an omicron. Modern editors of Thucydides prefer paianismos. Tzetzes seized the moment to interject some ethnography."
