Syll 587.308 (iv/B.C.) ἀναβαζμ [ο ]ύς (i.e. -σμούς), apparently parts of a τροχιλεία, on which see Dittenberger’s note. For examples of ἀ. in late Greek, cf. Aelian vi. 61, xi. 31; Dion Cass. lxv. 21, lxviii. 5 (Lobeck Phryn., p. 324). Rutherford (NP, p. 372) adds the note of Moeris, βασμὸς Ἀττικῶς, βαθμὸς Ἑλληνικῶς, in confirmation of Phrynichus, who tells us that the θ is Ionic : for the relation of the -σμός and -θμός suffixes see Brugmann-Thumb.4 p. 218 f.
