Following publication of the original article it was reported that the references cited in footnotes 1 and 2 were incorrect.

Footnote 1 erroneously cited references [71], [72], and [73]. These have been corrected to references [70], [71], and [72] respectively in the following sentence: “The text of the Odyssey is from the edition of [13], other texts of ancient cited authors (sc. Theophrastus [70], Apollonius [71], Dioscorides [72]) are likewise listed in the reference list under their editors’ names.”

Footnote 2 erroneously cited reference [71] instead of reference [70] following “…in Arthur Hort’s translation of Historia Plantarum, Enquiry into Plants”.

The references given in the reference list were correct and remain unchanged.
