Dover, in Greek Homosexuality , p. 125 n. 1, observes: ‘My interpretation ad loc. , that drosos is Cowper's secretion, appearing when the boy's penis has been erected by titillation, is far-fetched , but no other interpretation so far seems to me to pay enough attention to the semantics of drosos or to explain why Right regards the beauty of “drosos and down” as incompatible with anointing below the navel’
