anoaunum. Page 450, line 10, insert as afoot note,‘ Dr. J. Swiney has pointed out to me the following passage in the “ Analecta Antiquitatum et Consuetudinum Pereicarum," contained in a work entitled, “Asia, by BAPTISTA GRAMAYE,” page 377, “ Dianam Persiczi voce NANNEAM vocabant, et certis mysteriis colehant.” This is precisely the word on the reverse of the Kanerkos coin, and would prove the figure to represent the moon, a very probable circumstance, as some coins since discovered place her in direct connection with Mithra, the sun. It also readily accounts for the word Mao, on numerous coins of the same class, that being doubtless the Zend for Mas (Sunscrit) and Main (Persian), the moon.
