Notes upon aulodic nomoi, particularly the Apothetos and the Schoinion: the first one was probably so named after the claim of its supposed inventor, Clonas, to have made the larger public know a not (or not yet) widely-circulated melody, perhaps on the occasion of a great festival; the second one was perhaps so called because it resembled in some way the Grey Wagtail’s call (in Greek Schoiniōn or Schoiniklos), recognized by Greeks as a melody characterized by a well defined rhythm.
